The case for a holistic approach to IT security
An existential threat with authorities behind the curve
The National Crime Agency didn’t pull any punches in the report Cyber Crime Assessment 2016, published by its Strategic Cyber Industry Group. The Executive Summary warned of “an existential threat to one or more major UK businesses” and that “criminal cyber capability development currently outpaces the UK’s collective response to cyber crime.”
Such statements are not hyperbole. Cyber crime is at an all-time high and the threat environment continues to be agile as IT security threats morph rapidly and may be blended to enable them to penetrate defences.
Faced with threats that are existential and where the authorities are behind the curve, what can firms do to minimise IT security risks?
