PA cyber security expert Ed Savage joined the panel at the British American Business breakfast briefing on: Cyber security and data risk: War in the fifth domain.
Ed shared his insights on how organisations can develop an effective strategy to defend against cyber attacks (including those which may be promoted by insiders) and why cyber security is no longer just a technical issue.
With an increasing number of attacks on critical technology infrastructure and control systems, cyber security is frequently being cited as the fifth dimension of warfare. On both sides of the Atlantic, threats in cyberspace are rising up the scale of national security threats, and creating problems that know no state, corporate or societal borders. For all businesses, it is essential to have a robust, integrated, business-led and risk-based approach to cyber security; one that inspires confidence rather than simply achieves compliance.
Ed was joined by Andrew Hock, Enterprise Mobility Solutions Manager, Vodafone Global Enterprise and Tom Reagan, Senior Underwriter, Technology, Media & Business Services Team, Beazley. The briefing was moderated by Joe Kolman, Senior Editor, Economist Intelligence Unit.
