Cyber attacks are the top threat to organisations

Each year, the BCI in association with BSI produces the Horizon Scan Report, which presents findings on short- and long-term business threats.

Cyber attacks and data breaches have been the top two threats for the past three years. This year’s report reveals that cyber threats continue to be the top concern for business continuity and resilience professionals.

53% of respondents were “extremely concerned” about the risk of a cyber attack, and 42% were concerned about the risk of a data breach.

The report also measures emerging trends and uncertainties in the longer term. Malicious attacks are perceived as the top threat (77%). The increased adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) devices makes it likely that cyber threats will continue to intensify.

With large-scale cyber attacks on the rise and the number of Internet-connected devices increasing, it is crucial that organisations have the right cyber security in place.

A cyber health check will help you identify your weakest security areas and recommend appropriate measures to mitigate your risks.

Combat the cyber threat

Carrying out a cyber health check will provide you with a concise and detailed report describing your current cyber risk status and critical exposures, and recommendations for reducing your cyber and compliance risks.

The IT Governance three phase Cyber Health Check combines on-site consultancy and audit, remote vulnerability assessments and an online staff questionnaire to identify your current cyber risks in the three key exposure areas of people, processes and technology.
