Digital technology continues to transform and disrupt the world of business, exposing organisations to both opportunities and threats. In this age of dependence on IT systems, effective IT security is a business imperative. Knowing more about key IT risks and how to manage them is important for all businesses' success now and in the digital future.
Richard Chambers, former IIA president, wrote: “The technology risks we face today are increasingly complex, and a sophisticated, well-thought-out approach is required to manage them.”
Today criminals will target any business regardless of size by exploiting weaknesses both internal and external. Understanding the weaknesses in an organisation is the best way to protect the business against cyber risk allowing the opportunity to implement effective controls mechanisms before it’s too late.
This session will explore how businesses can help manage the risks and threats from cyber enabled attacks through improved prevention and detection.
