Conducting business via the internet produces many opportunities including lower costs, increased revenue, greater speed to market and better access to customers. However, the number of reported Cyber Security breaches highlights the challenges of adopting internet based systems.
Cyber Security is no longer an IT issue but instead an issue facing all business leaders. As such, it is not just the responsibility of the Chief Information Officer / Head of Information Technology or Chief Information Security Officer.
There are many cyber risks - some more serious than others. Dangers include viruses erasing your entire network, someone breaking into your system and altering files or someone using your computer to attack others.
This Market Briefing will highlight the emerging Cyber Security issues and what can be done to protect organisations.
