Here is a snippet of what was discussed:

Q: Why is it so important for an organisation to maintain a good cyber security posture?

A: “There are many reasons, to maintain a good security posture such as:
- Help keep intellectual property, systems and data secure.
- Reduce the risk of reputational damage, possible financial loss, loss of business and likely associated fines.
- Promote a secure organisation to both their own staff and their customers.
- Help bring growth as a trusted organisation to work with.”

Q: How has the COVID-19 pandemic caused a rise in cyber-attacks?

A: “Prior to COVID-19 there were many reports detailing the ongoing rise of remote cyber-attacks. Studies have continued to show a rise in targeted phishing during the pandemic as well as feedback from our own clients across multiple sectors. In the current enforced remote working situation, it was immediately predictable that cyber criminals have continued to evolve and adapt their methodologies accordingly.”
