The incidence of crime and industrial espionage through cyber means is increasing to the point that is it now the most likely vector of attack on most firms, because it is cheaper, easier, and potentially more effective than traditional methods.
The cyber threat to industry continues to rise as company operations have become totally reliant on the information and telecommunication technologies; the nature & complexity of the threats have evolved aggressively, and most sectors are becoming increasingly vulnerable.
This has heightened the level of cyber threat dramatically, and is driving a renewed focus on the types of vulnerability inherent to both IT and operating systems, as well as a renewed focus on risk assessments, in the recognition that cyber attacks can perpetrate damage that was not previously considered in the realm of information assurance or network security.
Organisations need to address the risk that cyber space now represents to their information assets, intellectual property, competitive positioning, and the security of their processes. Cyber risk now incorporates numerous high-impact scenarios that organisations can no longer ignore. The greatest risks are now converged risks which most firms are struggling to grasp.
2012 represented a significant change in the nature of the cyber environment, both in terms of malicious activity and in the recognition of the weaknesses of current defence, which has prompted more urgent debate, planning, and investment in protection.
