Cyber threats in Media & Tech
Wed 26 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
The government now recognises that reputation is a crown jewel of UK economy.
Today, financially motivated hackers are increasingly targeting the media industry. The recent National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021 talks about media organisations being a high-threat target. They see this as a source where an attack could harm the UK’s reputation, damage public confidence in the Government, or endanger freedom of expression.
To make this even more concerning a recent survey from Marsh states that ‘75% of organisations do not have a “complete” understanding of cyber risk’.
Companies who appreciate the potential magnitude of these risks and embrace cyber resilience within their risk culture will be better placed to take advantage of the ever changing technology advancements. This will drive business growth whilst minimising the financial and reputational damage of any security breaches in the future.
Understanding how to best equip your business can significantly reduce not only the odds of your business being the next breach headline, but can also help minimize negative impact should a breach occur.
Recommendations for business leaders on how to control future cyber security risks include:
- Which assets are at risk from a cyber threat
- Develop systems and monitor IT equipment to help protect these assets
- Monitor potential threats down the pipeline that the company could face
