Managing the biggest non-financial corporate risk
Cyber security is a hot topic. It is being discussed globally, affecting individuals, businesses and governments.
Cyber attacks are the one of the top-financial risks that businesses and society face today. There have been many examples of cyber incidents. Hiscox have reported a 40% increase in cyber attacks in 2019 so far, affecting, over half of British businesses. This is why the investment forecast shows a 59% increase in cyber protection (Statista).
The World Economic Forum (WEF) annual report of global risks, places cyber-attacks as one of the top 5 risks, behind fraud, natural disasters, climate change and extreme weather events. With Gartner estimating that companies could incur $5.2 trillion in additional costs and lost revenue over the next five years due to cyber-attacks and the average cost to a company of a cyber-attack is around $1m. It is a subject that companies need to better understand and mange.
Some boards and executives have patchy understanding of cyber security. This is a risk that is not going away, and will only increase in likelihood with inadequate board management and planning. In our global economy with the adoption of AI, introduction of 5G and the expanding of IoT, the risk and magnitude of cyber attacks is growing. Cyber crime is now a recognised, well-defined criminal model.
