There is no bulletproof way to prevent a cyber-attack. To keep pace with the evolving threat landscape, consistent vigilance and adaptation is essential. Cyber security is a journey we are on together with our clients, and not a destination. Soon your cyber security score will be more important than your credit score, meaning it must be recognised as a business priority and not an IT cost.
It is important to acknowledge that cyber security doesn’t have to get in the way of productivity. Getting the basics right and providing a solid foundation protects against 98% of attacks (Microsoft Digital Defence Report). The basics being antimalware, least privilege access, multi-factor authentication, patching, and backup are the good hygiene practices most businesses are already leveraging.
