The field of information security has evolved with organisations’ investment in, and use of technological developments. Organisations today are able to yield benefits from large-scale collection of data and enhanced connectivity with customers and tried parties through digital platforms. These same factors however also expose organisations to cyber threats.
Cyber Security will remain the prominent digital challenge of the 21st century, with attacks becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex (from phishing and sophisticated socially engineered attacks to targeted, advanced persistent attacks). If breached, the consequences are normally significant (including reputational impact, costs from legal claims, and/or increased sanctions due to regulations such as the European, General Regulation).
At BDO we continue to deploy our Cyber Security expertise to help our clients better understand the precise threat scenarios (whether theft of information assets or sabotage of data or online services with ransom request) and the vulnerabilities, relevant to their business, that may allow the threats to materialise.
BDO has a team of information and cyber security experts which, along with our investment in tools and methods, can help bring the latest insights to your business. BDO’s Cyber Security services shape around a number of different solutions, from high level assessments to deeper intrusive assessment of the security configuration.
