An interesting 12 months have passed with the issue of information security as we continue to see successful enterprise scale cyber security breaches. Each and every industry sector is facing an increased cyber security threat. Businesses must invest to reduce their cyber risks to an acceptable level and protect client data effectively to remain competitive in challenging markets.
This year's Global State of Information Security Survey (GSISS) 2016 identifies that Information Security budgets are on the increase. The number of incidents detected and reported, globally, has also risen since the 2015 report. Companies are being forced to shift their thinking around technology and are looking at new and innovative ways to invest and operate their technology ecosystem. Not only are we facing the traditional cyber security risks but we expose ourselves to new cyber threats as we adopt new ways of working and innovate, such as the convergence of Operational Technology and Information Technology networks to improve efficiency and reduce operational costs.
