From bitter truths to tasty ingredients – your recipe for cybersecurity preparedness

The rapid transformation from analog to digital practices, known as digitalisation, is providing public and private sector organisations with more value-producing opportunities at an ever-increasing pace. This is something to cheer about.

Concurrently however, the information security threat landscape is becoming ever more more complex and is constantly seeking to outpace, overwhelm and undermine our information security vigilance and resilience. High-profile data breach incidents with catastrophic consequences are ever more often in the published media. Often the kneejerk reaction is to throw more money and technology at this problem in the hope it will “go away”. But this is the wrong starting point.

There is a general wisdom that 80% of security relies on human awareness. Therefore the starting point for improving information security vigilance and resilience is understanding the fundamentals and the required mindset. The objective of this webinar is to demystify security by explaining the fundamentals and mindset in simple terms with simple examples that you can relate to in your every day life.

There are two types of organisations in the world: those that know they’ve been hacked, and those that don’t. This webinar concludes with advise for how your organisation can start architecting a vigilant and resilient information security foundation.

Don’t believe in luck. Believe in awareness and preparation.

The webinar was held by Gofore’s Information Security Management Consultant Niall O’Donoghue.
