Digital technologies have touched almost every aspect of our life to some extent. Cloud, big data, mobile computing devices and social networking have profoundly changed the dynamics of the modern business. These technologies help us do our work more efficiently, enable businesses connect with genuine customers and deliver better, more personalised products or services. For organisations, the ability to quickly adapt to innovations and implement digital technology that enhances their productivity is a must in the current economic climate.
At the same time organisations are being constantly targeted by myriads of attackers that have different intentions, abilities and levels of determination. Criminals are busy at hacking to make money; foreign governments target particular business sectors (such as resource companies, defence contractors and/or technology firms); business competitors are hunting for intellectual property and strategic plans; and hacktivists are making every effort to disrupt an organisation or steal information for political reasons.
Whether targeted or opportunistic, attacks against businesses often result in severe reputational damages and potentially devastating financial losses. The recent series of unprecedented information security breaches shook consumer confidence in digital economy and in organisations’ abilities to protect their valuable information.
Restoring trust require new security approaches, stronger defences and better skilled incident responders that more readily able to respond, facilitate the recovery and propose appropriate mitigation.
The increasing dependence of organisations on digital technology presents new challenges to information security and compliance. The need to keep sensitive information secure and its integrity intact has never been so important. Top management who continue to under-invest in information security are putting their organisations, employees, and shareholders at serious risk.
