Evolving the risk based cyber security framework to drive cloud and data initiatives Worldwide spending on cybersecurity is predicted to top $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021, according to experts. Why is that we ask? According to a report ‘IT analyst forecasts are unable to keep pace with the dramatic rise in cybercrime, the ransomware epidemic, the refocusing of malware from PCs and laptops to smartphones and mobile devices, the deployment of billions of under-protected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the legions of hackers-for-hire, and the more sophisticated cyber-attacks launching at businesses, governments, educational institutions, and consumers globally.’
In early 2015 Inga Beale, CEO at the British insurer Lloyd’s, claimed that cybercrime was costing businesses globally up to $400 billion a year. Several months later Juniper Research released a report which said cybercrime will cost businesses over $2 trillion by 2019. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated $3 trillion of market value was destroyed in 2015 due to cybercrime. TalkTalk, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco Bank all have become synonymous with the new reality of organised cyber crime.
There has never been a more exciting and challenging time for the industry.
CISOs are strategists by default and with the complexity and rapid growth in technology, CISOs now have to implement cyber security frameworks to enable the businesses to capitalise on the data-centric and cloud computing projects currently dominating business agendas.
