If your name’s not down, you’re not coming in.
Understand the cyber security vulnerabilities of digital transformation with BT and KPMG’s thought leadership paper, Taking the offensive: Disrupting cyber crime.
We all love getting together for a party, but nobody likes uninvited guests turning up and ruining the festivities. And it’s the same when it comes to IT security – we all need to work together, taking personal and collective responsibility to make sure digital criminals have far fewer opportunities to get in.
‘Taking the offensive’, a recent report by KPMG and BT, investigates how organisations could do more to combat cyber-crime. It’s a rallying cry that highlights a lack of awareness, togetherness and preparedness. In fact, it reports that only 22% of businesses said they were fully ready to tackle security breaches.
The holiday season is a good time to be thinking about the fight against cyber-crime. Many consumers spend more at this time of year than any other. This sheer volume of transactions is a feast of opportunity for organised criminals. And with the wealth of sophisticated tools and tricks at their disposal – from malware to ransomware to phishing – they already cost the world $400 billion every year.
Discover how digital transformation has created new vulnerabilities that cyber-criminals are quick to exploit. And see how many of the world’s biggest companies are now facing an unprecedented number and variety of sophisticated attacks. This paper looks at the nature of the latest threats and acts as a roadmap for how businesses can protect their assets, intellectual property and customer data, and ensure they’re prepared against the growing threat.
We need a new way of thinking that’s more proactive, better informed and more collaborative. In other words, now’s the time to share intelligence, resources and best practices. When it comes to keeping businesses safe, we need to make sure the cyber-criminals don’t make it in to the party. And locking them out will really help you enjoy your office party without any distractions.
