The Chancellor of the Exchequer today says Britain will strike back at foreign cyber threats and that cyber criminals can strike everyone, from the bedroom to the board room. He’s right. Everyone – and businesses most of all – has a duty to take action – today. Hire a security expert to test your Internet perimeter and your internal security posture. Get started with a Cyber Governance and Assurance framework. At the very least, get Cyber Essentials certified – the world’s least expensive route for giving staff, customers and stakeholders the basic assurance that you’re safe from around 80% of Internet cyber attacks. And get started today; make November the month that you contribute to Britain’s cyber security strategy.
