We live in a world where connectivity is celebrated, yet the reality is that every new connection provides a new opportunity for a hacker to penetrate often flimsy defences and access personal information, steal confidential commercial data, or disrupt operations. And while cyber threats have been around since the birth of computing, in recent years their level of sophistication has grown exponentially.
Yet it is remarkable how many organisation that rely entirely on their digital infrastructure don’t have a robust, forward-looking strategy to deal with the increasingly well-organised cyber security threat. One explanation for the failure to proactively implement effective security measures is the lack of senior talent in this relatively new sector. Yet although the talent pool is relatively small, it is in huge demand, as firms in all sectors headhunt for the best cyber security executives.
