Business success is the result of careful planning and pro-active management. That means considering all the risks that you face and taking appropriate steps to manage them.
Although 87% of companies identify cyber as a principal risk, few take positive action to address the threat or put strategies in place to mitigate the impact of an attack. In a recent survey of the types of cyber attack, unauthorised access to systems ranked most common (19%), followed by hacking (13%) and malware (13%). Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks were almost completely ignored, despite some predictions that we could see ten million DDoS incidents in 2017.
The growth of the internet and the emergence of cloud based systems means that even the smallest organisation faces some degree of cyber threat. However, like any other risk a systematic approach to management can put robust and appropriate control structures in place to help you combat it.
