This session will explore how businesses can help manage the risks and threats from cyber enabled attacks through improved prevention and detection especially as we continue to work from home and look to a hybrid working future.
Cybersecurity experts predicted that in 2021, there would be a cyberattack incident every 11 seconds double the amount from the previous year and mainly coming in the form of ransomware. As the ongoing pandemic has seen more of us working from home than ever before the setting is ripe for exploitation. The humble home router has become the surface attack, and the ‘work at home’ employee the target of choice.
Today criminals will target any business regardless of size by exploiting weaknesses both internal and external. Understanding the weaknesses in your organisation is the best way to protect your business against fraud and cyber risk allowing you the opportunity to implement effective controls mechanisms before it’s too late.
