Why cyber security & resilience needs to be at the centre of everything You do.
The cyber security industry is estimating that it will cost organisations £1.7 trillion to protect information over the next few years. Furthermore, recent statistics show that 43 percent of information security professionals believe their organisation is investing too little on to defend against attacks.
The threat of cyber security issues presents itself daily and can cause immediate business interruption, data loss and even financial fraud. At the same time, however, cyber protection costs are rising at least five times faster than inflation according to Gartner.
As a result, organisations today need to look beyond simply adding cyber security processes as an afterthought but should integrate them into their strategy from day one. When your organisation looks to do anything from building a laptop for a new employee to moving your email to the cloud, security should be at the core of your processes and procedures.
Investment should not just take the form of hardware, software, and experienced, skilled specialists. Cyber security awareness is the responsibility of everyone. Employee training and awareness is key, after technical controls your employees are your next line of defence.
The 9th Annual “state of the phish” is continuing to report that email-based attacks continue to be the greatest threat to organisations across the UK. Regular training and phishing training is a great way to reduce this threat.
