Cyber Security is ‘hot’. Not a day goes by or new threats have been discovered, and new defenses have been introduced. A recent report estimated the total global damage inflicted by cyber crime to be close to 500 billion dollars, and that’s not even counting the effects of ‘cyber-warfare’. What should you do? What can you do as a person, and what should companies do?
In the book, the authors describe the present day state of security: the threats, the changes and the challenges companies are facing. The book highlights the big changes that are happening in cyber security: from the mobile revolution and BYOD hype to increased acceptance of the fact that ‘you will be hacked’. And that it’s ok to accept that you will be hacked, just like any bank knows that they will face fraud, or any store knows they will face theft. The book is written by Sogeti in collaboration with IBM.
Staying Ahead in the Cyber Security Game
In the book, the authors describe the present day state of security: the threats, the changes and the challenges companies are facing.It’s how you minimize the impact and organize the response that counts, at least as much as prevention, defense and deterrence. This of course has consequences for how you organize and execute your security, your strategy etc.
