security & identity
IT and business executives need to apply a risk-management approach that balances economic value against risks to avoid financial loss and potentially a prison sentence
Cyber security remains a key problem for businesses large and small. One key weakness in many organisations is cloud identity protection within online environments, as staff members and ex-staffers continue to be a major area of cyber security risk for organisations.
UK organisations continue to suffer from cyber security breaches. A recent PwC survey finds that nine in ten (90%) large organisations and 74% of small organisations are affected. The costs of such intrusions have been increasing year on year. For large organisations costs now come in at a little under £1.5 million to £3.14 million, while for small organisations the range starts at £75,200 and goes up to around £310,800. Recently, large scale infiltrations of consumer goods companies and financial institutions by hackers have resulted in the loss of a large number of consumer records, including the 76 million records stolen from JP Morgan Chase and the 145 million customer records copied from eBay’s database.
