UK Government warn UK board members and CEOs about cyber crime threat.

Today, the Government is issuing advice to British business leaders on how to protect themselves from cyber threats. Ministers and officials from communications intelligence agency, GCHQ will stress the importance of a more security-conscious culture for UK companies.

Iain Lobban, the head of GCHQ, will tell business leaders that any confidence they may have in their cyberdefences is likely to be misplaced, with potentially major implications. He will ask board members and chief executives whether they are aware of the impact on a company’s reputation, share price or even existence if sensitive information is stolen.

Effective cyber security depends on coordinated, integrated preparations for rebuffing, responding to and recovering from, a range of possible cyber attacks. In an Internet environment where a substantial number of initial attacks are automated, and any assault on critical national infrastructure (‘CNI’) is likely to be widespread, all organisations urgently need to take steps to adequately prepare themselves.
