Cyber security - Myths vs Reality

04 March 2020

The headlines spread news of sophisticated hackers that can take your lifesavings away with a click, the alleged horrors of the dark web and online scams. In other words, we are all oversaturated with FUD (“fear, uncertainty, and doubt”). However, FUD is fundamentally unhelpful.

To move towards a constructive narrative that values proactiveness in a robust and proportional way, an alternative is the CCC approach or “Common sense, Certainty and Confidence”. The CCC approach is of particular relevance for Jersey organisations, who need to be efficient with their security budget whilst at the same time robustly protecting themselves against realistic threats

See attached the “TOP 10 most common cybersecurity myths” that you should be mindful of. We hope this will help combat FUD, lead to better decision making and help improve your organisation’s cybersecurity posture.
