Cyber Security

Cyber security may sound technical in nature, but at its core it is a business issue. A company’s competitive position and financial health may be at stake. Business and technology leaders need to engage in effective dialog about what the business values are, how the company drives competitive advantage and which information and other digital assets are sensitive. Brand, customer trust and strategic positioning are at risk.

This new reality requires a new attitude around security and privacy. Anticipate and prevent when possible, but be ready to isolate and encapsulate intrusions to reduce impact. There may be no such thing as hacker-proof, but there’s a chance to reduce your cyber beacon, be less inviting to attack and proactively establish outward- and inward-facing measures around your valued assets.
