Watch our video to hear Richard's point of view on the hot issues in cyber security and learn how successful organisations are protecting themselves.
The digital age provides immense opportunity for organisations to grow and develop - and revolutionise customer experience.
However, in seizing these opportunities, organisations can make themselves vulnerable to the very real and increasing number of cyber-security threats.
Managing cyber-risk is a fundamental part of business management.
The threats are dynamic, broad and sophisticated - and traditional approaches to security are too narrow and flat-footed.
The nature of risk has changed … and so the way we manage that risk has to change too.
What’s on your mind?
Developments such as cloud computing have great upsides, but they also increase our dependence on systems and processes that are outside of our control
The fact is, we operate in an inter-connected world where a cyber-incident in one organisation can affect others - even where there’s no direct trading relationship.
Traditional approaches to security that focus on compliance and technology in isolation, will not give you the confidence to seize opportunities in today's digital, connected world.
The threat is evolving incredibly rapidly - with nation states, organised criminals and hacktivists investing huge resources in developing their capability.
New skills and capacity are required to understand emerging threats and vulnerabilities, detect incidents when they happen, and respond at pace.
And new legal issues need to be managed to balance organisational effectiveness with customer service, privacy and the need to monitor digital processes for malicious activity.
Our Point of View
We’ve seen hundreds of millions of pounds lost to fraud, large commercial transactions derailed and disruptions directly impacting customers.
Cyber security is a strategic issue that has to be understood and led by boards and executive management.
It’s no longer just a question of ‘execution’ - to be delegated to IT…
It’s about your reputation… and about building confidence in your digital future
Cyber security is an enterprise risk. But risk isn't bad - it is part of seizing opportunity.
The key is understanding your risk, how it is changing, and whether it is appropriately controlled.
What good looks like
A successful organisation knows what matters to its success, and which risks might undermine that success.
Cyber security, is no different - it’s about knowing what digital processes, data and systems matter…
… what the threats to them are…
…and how vulnerable they might be.
Boards need to be engaged, and recognise how the strategic plan may be exposing the business to new cyber threats.
And management needs to measure the effectiveness of cyber security controls, inform the board of their operational effectiveness…and provide intelligence as to emerging threats.How we can help
