The #1 Problem for CEOs today is Managing Operational Risks and that includes Cybersecurity Risks
A cyber attack is a company’s worst nightmare. Malware, ransomware and phishing are the big 3 of cybersecurity threats. What is a cyber attack you ask? Cyber attacks are attempts to steal, expose alter or destroy data by gaining unauthorized access to computer systems. A data breach can spell disaster for companies big and small. The reality is that most companies do not have a risk mitigation strategy, or a tool to manage potential risks and therefore end up scrambling when it happens to them.
According to Branham Group, 65% of businesses feel they are at significant risk from cybersecurity attacks and have no formal means to record, manage and mitigate them. The reasons are clear, the cost of specialized software and the time to implement are beyond what they can manage.
