Cybersecurity is a fundamental challenge for every organisation.
Whether you're a multinational, in the public sector, a housing association or a medium-sized family or other business. Why? Because no cyber incident is entirely preventable and every organisation is a potential target. The rapid pace of change in information technology, along with increasingly linked systems and the internet, means IT systems are not always as reliable as you would like. Even if systems do not contain valuable information, ransomware can disable systems and prevent organisations from accessing their own information.
Attackers could then blackmail these organisations. However, although many organisations are more concerned about the direct damage, a cyber incident can cause, long-term effects, such as damage to an organisation’s reputation, can be far more difficult to deal with. The key question, therefore, is how to limit the damage? Cybersecurity is also essential from a privacy perspective and because of constantly evolving legislation and regulations. Society and your clients, suppliers and employees rely on you to manage their personal data carefully. And you have to accept that responsibility!
