The openess and connectivity of the digital economy today provides huge opportunities but also creates new risks. Lack of security awareness can result in these risks being exploited and a company losing money, information and reputation. So why isn’t IT security at the top of every board’s agenda?
Does your business know the answer to questions needed to gauge the level of exposure?
- How attractive a target are we?
- Do we have assets or processes exposed?
- What would be the consequences and costs of a successful attack?
Asking and addressing these questions should help to avoid complacency and panic. It is essential for a company to consider “could it happen to us?” and manage their risks within acceptable limits.
Many risks or security threats can be countered through employing regular vulnerability assessments and penetration tests across a company’s IT assets. CY4OR has extensive experience in providing IT security services to companies of all shapes and sizes. We take a structured approach to assessing business and IT risks and provide consultancy and support as appropriate.
The process of risk management is an ongoing iterative process as the business environment is constantly changing with new threats and vulnerabilities emerging every day.
