Whos watching your business? - Cheltenham Cyber Security Conference - Friday 7th June

You may already have been a victim. According to the KPMGs Data Loss Barometer hacking of business information incidents leapt from 8% in 2010 to more than 50% in 2012. It is clear that cyber-attacks can no longer be considered a nuisance sport played by technically talented people, but should be considered a real and present threat, driven by a desire to steal or damage sensitive material. Preparing yourself against attack protects your bottom line.

Many business leaders are worried about cybercrime; the difficulty is knowing which threats to be worried about, how worried to be and knowing what can be sensibly achieved within the confines of the business


- Dibble Clark, Chairman 3SDL Ltd.
