Don’t close your eyes. It’s time to be aware. Know the threats.

In recent weeks I have spoken with clients and prospective clients who have been subjected to attack by cyber criminals.  Cyber-attacks on SMEs are becoming more common and more sophisticated.  In some cases, the attacks were successful and there was resulting business interruption from system downtime and data-loss from ransomware encrypting critical business files.

A recent investigation by Harvard Business Review identified 4 flaws within many businesses:

1) Cyber risk disclosure continues to be inadequate, meaning many breaches may go unnoticed or unreported

2) Cost cutting can inadvertently trigger a cyber breach

3) Without proper control, systemic cyber risk is building

4) Many businesses continue to be unprepared or unqualified to deal with cyber risk. hbr.org. (2019) The Marriott Breach Shows Just How Inadequate Cyber Risk Disclosures Are. Read the full story here.
