Reputation & Competitive Advantage
An increasing number of high profile data breaches have taught us that how a company looks after their information and manages any incidents can make or break an organisation. This can be the difference between winning and losing business contracts.
Getting it right, however, has the ability to directly impact upon the business’s bottom line, as increased confidence brings increased share price and competitive advantage.
Emerging Threats & Risks
Being able to navigate the ever-changing Threat landscape presents a myriad of challenges for today’s modern, technologically-savvy organisation. Identifying what could compromise your assets can range from human error to environmental factors – all the way through to serious organised crime and targeted Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) campaigns.
Building up a holistic picture of the Threat landscape will enable organisations to forecast the consequences of a potential attack and act to mitigate the associated risks.
Protecting & Exploiting Information
The average estimate of breaches cost an organisation anywhere between £75,000 to £311,000 for SMEs and £1.45-3.14 million for large organisations, there is a clear business justification to foster a culture which values and protects information.
Organisations who are able to recognise the strategic value of the information they hold, and exploit their assets, are more likely to improve their ‘value for money’ potential and see benefits such as business innovation and financial revenue.
