Never before has the creation and preservation of value depended so much on effective cybersecurity, nor has the means to “getting security right” been so complex. Many aspects of traditional security management are urgently being reconsidered as security teams seek to stay aligned with the characteristics of the modern enterprise and ahead of the threats. It is important for organizations to cut through the market noise and gain a different perspective on practical ways forward. Informed by the collective voice of our clients, as well as our own security evolution, this presentation will provide insight in to current threats, discuss how a risk based approach is critical to establishing an effective cyber security program and will identify key steps for preparedness.
