Cyber transformation

Unlocking growth through digital trust

Digital innovation has become the frontier of service improvements, from the UK Government’s online tax portal to banks using artificial intelligence to help people save. In all sectors, digital leaders are growing faster than their competitors.

But with this increasingly digital existence comes a greater need to focus on cyber security. Not only to mitigate constantly evolving threats and improve business resilience, but to unlock the growth digital trust enables. The COVID-19 crisis has shown organisations that had already embraced digital innovations and cyber security can better maintain operations and grow during the most difficult of times.

Taking cyber security beyond a technical specialism and putting it at the forefront of strategy at every level of an organisation has the potential to greatly improve business performance and people’s experiences. Making such a radical shift requires a cyber transformation. This means aligning technology solutions with the people using them by implementing processes that encourage and improve security while supporting business growth. It also means developing a cyber-savvy culture across the organisation to make security a natural part of doing good business.
