Just like all things good, digital transformation comes at a price, as many businesses around the world are learning and, just as cloud computing is on a steep upward trajectory, so is cyber crime. But with the benefits to business so high, the answer lies in better cyber security, not shutting the doors.
Statistics always seem to deliver scary numbers but, when it comes to cyber crime, that’s because they are. A recent report from Juniper Research, a specialist consultancy that focus on digital trends, recorded that the cost of cyber crime was a staggering $3 trillion, an unbelievably high number when you consider that the UK GDP is $2.8 trillion.
Cyber crime is here to stay and is now considered a primary boardroom focus, affecting every aspect of business activity, from corporate governance to customer confidence.
While there’s no ‘silver bullet’, there is a lot businesses can do to reduce the risks of cyber crime, with some very sophisticated technologies available to support them. Which one is right for you is the challenge and we want to help you understand the risks, evaluate your options and make the right decision as to how best to protect your business and the people it relies on.
