Scottish companies warned on cyber security

PA’s Edward Savage, cyber security expert, is quoted in an article on Scottish cyber security. The article is in response to the Scottish Business Resilience Centre issuing a warning to Scottish firms to step up their cyber security measures – especially if the internet is a fundamental part of their supply chain.

Edward explains that reviewing small and medium sized business supply chain security can be a troublesome task, but says that policy is a good place to start.

“Reviewing the security of a companies' supply chain can be like painting the Forth Bridge. However, a few simple questions can quickly reveal quite a lot,” says Edward.

Edward goes on to comment: “A risk-based approach, which addresses people and physical security as well as technology, is the core of good practice. Many smaller companies have found the PAS 555 Cyber Security Standard useful, because it tells them what good looks like, without requiring a large corporate approach to delivering it.”
