Cybersecurity: How best to protect your organisation
With the complexities involved, proactively mitigating risk related to cybersecurity can be challenging and time consuming. It is now a question of "when" an organisation will experience a breach or cyberattack.
One in three in-house counsel have experienced a data breachŦ and 43% of businesses have experienced cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months^.
It is crucial to be able to deal with a cybersecurity incident in such a way that financial and reputational damage to the company is kept to a minimum. In some instances, the crisis can even be used to enhance a company’s reputation and build on brand equity. Here a robust prevention strategy and effective response plan is critical.
