Cyber Security – Minimise Risk in Today’s Culture of Computing

As the world continues to deepen its digital footprint, organised criminal gangs sitting on the other side of the screen are on the increase, acting almost like an unfortunate side-effect.

Stories almost always focus on someone far away, like high ranking politicians, celebrities or big companies. But cyber crime and malicious hackers also target regular people, like you and me. And they do so far more frequently than we’d like to think.

Around 18 million malware samples were discovered in 2016. That’s nearly 50,000 new malware every single day. Of all the malware out there, ransomware has grown to become the biggest cyber threat. Ransomware attacks on healthcare organisations (#1 cyber-attacked industry, and just one example of many hitting the headlines), will quadruple by 2020.

Cyber Security spending is to exceed $1 trillion by 2021. The rising tide of cyber crime has pushed security spending to more than $86.4 billion in 2017.

We are facing one of the biggest global challenges. To learn more on how we can begin to bring some clarity in a growing world of digital threats, join us for a free-to-attend webinar on Friday 17th November.
