Cyber Risk is Real
MMA is finding that organizations are still not doing enough to protect their data or recover from a breach and they are finding that the pace of digital advancement is quicker than their cyber risk preparedness. Employers of all sizes still appear to be vulnerable to the risks of cyber-crime and data breaches. And now there are many technology implications because of changing work environments, such as work from home. A couple of these concerns are: (1) Increases in ransomware, both in sophistication of the attacks and the increase in ransom demands, and (2) The complexity of compliance with enhanced privacy protection laws in many states. Cyber-security and the data privacy landscape is now more challenging than ever, even for the most well-meaning and well-prepared companies.In the Marsh 2020 Global Risks Report, cyber ranked 5th in areas risk will increase.
- 76% of respondents expect an increased risk of cyber attacks leading to disruption of operations and infrastructure
- 75% of respondents expect an increase in cyber risk of cyber attacks leading to theft of money or data
With cyber, it is not an issue of if but when an incident may affect your organization.
We have found that once an organization starts to take steps to mitigate a cyber-attack they are more confident that they will be able to recognize, respond to, and recover from the inevitable attack.
