Reaching for Resilience

October 2017

The understanding of ‘cyber’ security has been evolving gradually, not least because of the increasing need for stakeholders and decision-makers to become more cyber ‘literate’ to the point of being able to objectively assess the risk. This is still a distant objective however, because there is inadequate awareness of vulnerabilities, combined with a lack of appreciation of the types of threats that are evolving, and the full potential impact that they can have. Nonetheless, organisations are becoming more conscious of the direct and indirect implications of indemnity, liability, and charges of negligence resulting from disruption of service, loss of data integrity, and the resultant damage to organisational reputations.
