Bitcoin funds hacked
The number of high-profile cyber attacks happening is reaching an alarming rate.
It is important businesses across all sectors understand that a cyber-attack can come from anywhere – be it the company’s computers or mobile devices, employees’ own devices, IoT-connected machines, and many more. With the GDPR coming in force in less than a year, companies need to be aware of all the channels cyber criminals can use to infiltrate the company and steal data, and take proactive steps to safeguard their main asset – data.
There must be a clear and well-rehearsed crisis management plan for an attack, no matter where the attack occurs in the business, addressing internal and external communication so that they are able to respond to threats openly and clearly. Recent research from Fujitsu revealed that only a third of financial services organisations said that they were “very confident” that security could be maintained in the event of an outage. As such, businesses need to ensure they are robust in their security to stay ahead of competitors and remain trusted in the eyes of the consumer.
