Cyber Attack: Prepare, Protect, Prevent

No matter what sector you are in or the basis of your business operation, you’re at risk of a cyber attack. In 2014 81% of companies reported some form of security breach at a cost of between £600,000 and £1.5m per organisation (GOV UK - Information Security Breaches Survey1).

Socially or politically motivated, cyber attacks are carried out primarily through the internet and are designed to target an organisation’s computer systems and the information they hold; as such these malicious attacks from the internet can cause far-reaching reputational and financial damage to organisations.

On 19th November 2015, Griffiths & Armour will host an evening’s seminar on cyber attacks; geared to helping you better understand the cyber exposures and associated risks a business face.

  • Prepare – Identify the threat; types of attackers, their motivations and their technical capabilities
  • Protect – Classify your vulnerabilities, what they are, and how they could be exploited
  • Prevent – Understand what controls are needed to reduce the impact of common cyber attacks
