Talking Cyber Security – Cyber pragmatism the impact and consequences.


Threats from modern cyber attacks are becoming bigger than any IT department or Help desk in any organisation around the globe. The internalisation of the management and accountability of a security incident is becoming an unattainable business function.

The market is seeing a growing need to externalise the cost of an incident. With businesses better understanding the value of what they need to secure and the reality of the challenges in keeping those assets protected allows for the inclusion of external ways of protection and even insurance.

The adoption of pragmatic solutions in an area where insurance and understanding is immature will be a defining opportunity for any organisation who acknowledges that they cant manage everything and enabling themselves to better face the cybers!
