October marks National Cyber Security Awareness Month. During this month our cyber team are highlighting best practice on how to enhance cyber resilience from leading experts in the field.
We are delighted to launch our updated whitepaper which has been co-authored with Cyber Risk Score and takes a detailed look at building and enhancing cyber resilience in supply chains.
The recent annual Global Incident Response Threat Report from VMware, based on feedback from 125 cyber security experts, highlights the changing manner and form in which cyber-attacks are jeopardising organisations. Since their last survey in 2022, there has been a small decrease in the number of UK businesses experiencing cyber-attacks, which is encouraging news. However, this drop was driven by smaller businesses as medium and larger businesses remain at similar levels – showing that still, the need for education, preparedness and cyber response strategies continues to be an ever more prevalent issue.
It is therefore imperative that businesses maintain the necessary protections to operate a cyber-secure environment however big or small. Furthermore, it is clear that this issue is rampant in supply chains, and no matter how much companies prioritise cybersecurity, their resilience is only as good as their networks.
We have discussed the issues addressed in this paper with industry leaders, in addition to reviewing some real life examples to provide detailed first-hand accounts of the current climate.
Trowers' cyber experts Helen Briant, Charlotte Clayson and Amardeep Gill along with the rest of our team look forward to providing meaningful know-how and expertise on what is a real risk to any business regardless of sector or size.
