    The Perfect PR Playbook…For Responding to a Cyber Incident

    Cyber attacks now present a clear threat to all businesses and customers. While the problem is recognized among most large-scale enterprises (i.e. those with the capital to invest in high-end cybersecurity), there remains an inability for any network to remain 100 percent secure. This means that, for now, the average likelihood of a data breach remains high across the spectrum while the capacity for prevention is worryingly outpaced by the capacity of the threat. Today, there is no excuse for not having developed a full plan for responding effectively to a data breach, beginning with an airtight PR strategy...

    Is your business (really) equipped to respond to a data breach?

    While many C-level executives have a strategy in place for cybersecurity, many have not included sufficient planning to handle the aftermath of a successful cyber attack.

    Sony’s data leak sets new precedent for ‘critical’ data protection

    At first glance, there seems no particular reason why the defence industry should take much notice of the crisis experienced late in 2014 by Sony Pictures. The Hollywood film studio suffered an attack by hackers; stolen data included scripts of future releases, private emails to and from employees, and personal details of staff.

    Risk of environmental cyber attacks demands “enhanced monitoring”

    Much has been made of the hacking threat in recent weeks where it concerns the loss of business and intellectual property, but there is a risk that such attention can take the focus off the other – and arguably more vital – side of the spectrum; namely, the physical and environmental risks posed by miscreant or state-led cyber attacks. Most governments have at least been scrambling behind closed doors to strengthen protection for critical infrastructure, such as creating forums and legislation to enable private companies to share information with intelligence agencies. In the US, this has been seen in the establishment of CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). In the UK, the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) has been running a Portal to facilitate discussion, an initiative praised by the Technical Director of GCHQ this month, who confirmed that “the exchange is very open.”

    Is it time for a major rethink for data protection?

    The head of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), Troels Oerting, recently admonished businesses that still fail to take cyber threats seriously. Speaking at the tail end of what has become an annual cyber security awareness month, his words underscored the fact that one of the biggest concerns to global stability is in the unknown dangers of an online world rather than those we expect.

    After discovering at least four Danish defence companies, including Novozymes and Terma, Denmark's largest weapons company, were targeted by hackers – probably from China – over a four year period between 2008 and 2012, the country is hitting back with a coordinated cyber security strategy.
