CUSTOMERS EXPECT TO BE SECURE WHEN THEY INTERACT WITH YOUR BUSINESS ONLINE

Cyber attacks are increasing in frequency, scale and sophistication. Opportunistic criminals are taking advantage of the same technological advancement that firms are using to grow, and have come to pose a real threat to firms of all shapes and sizes.

When a customer interacts with your business, they trust you to protect their data and, in many cases, their money. The cost of failing to do so can be huge – and this is not just financial cost we’re talking about. 

It is your responsibility to ensure that your firm has a robust cyber security framework in place. Having this independently verified will only improve your security.

DEVELOPING AND TESTING YOUR STRATEGY AND FRAMEWORK

Cyber defence must be more than just reacting to events and attacks. Businesses must develop a cyber security strategy, with effective Board and executive oversight, to ensure a unified approach to managing cyber risk. All employees need to be upskilled on the potential ‘red flags’ that could signal a cyber-attack.
