Conventional information security measures continue to fail our businesses in today’s rapidly changing world of cyber-risk. Adverse cyber-events manifest themselves as the usual suspects including data breaches, information theft, ransom- and malware, viruses, payment card fraud, DDOS attacks or physical loss – to name but a few.
Problem is, the tally of adverse events keeps mounting up. While headline adverse cyber incidents are now reported in the media with regularity, this represents the tip of the cyber-risk iceberg. Most known events are either unreported or hidden from public disclosure. Not helping, is the industry analysis suggesting that, on average, nearly half of all adverse cyber-risk events impacting organisations are self-inflicted and avoidable. No industry is untouched.
Delivered at the CIO Summit in Melbourne, Australia in November 2016, in this presentation, Rob offers valuable strategic insights into the problem and why it continues to be a problem.
He outlines some practical steps that will be helpful for CIOs and CISOs in reshaping their own organisation’s approach in building a more effective and resilient information security capability.
