We live in one of the most open digital societies in the world. This brings lots of opportunities, but it also makes us vulnerable to the ever-evolving cyber attacks that seek to defraud, extort, exploit, steal information, damage or disrupt businesses and organisations of all sizes and across all sectors.
Any organisation connected to the internet is vulnerable to cyber attacks. This can be either targeted or non-targeted attacks. It’s a fact of digital life. Cyber attacks are simply one of the risks of doing business and communicating in a digital age. This risk should be managed in line with other organisational risks.
Getting the cyber basics right is relatively simple and can eliminate as much as 80% of the risk from non-targeted internet-borne threats. Doing business involves taking some informed risks but are you confident you are adequately informed about the cyber risk to your business?
