Technology and software have invaded the daily lives of the general public and businesses alike. While it allows innovation to develop at an accelerated speed, technology also entails many risks, which must be anticipated. Among these risks, cybersecurity is the most worrying and expensive for businesses across the world. Indeed, with reports and data showing a constant increase in cyberattacks, being a victim of cybercrime is no longer a question of “if” but rather a question of “when”.
This means that companies no longer have a choice and must ensure that their cybersecurity is up-to-date and strong enough to prevent irreparable damage in case of cyber-attack. However, recent surveys show that a great number of organisations have still not implemented any measures to prevent and respond to cyber-attacks. More surprisingly, it seems that there is a growing gap in organisations between the recognition at board level of the importance of cybersecurity and the way cyber policies are implemented. For example, in the UK, 38% of interviewed companies claim that the success of a cyber-attack is due to human error and yet, these same companies choose to invest in software after a security incident rather than in staff training (source: CSIS report).

And to support Cyber Awareness Month this October, and to help organisations improve their cyber-resilience, Vaultinum is giving away a free cyber-assessment. Details are available on the website.
