Prof. Michael Fraser AM, Professor of Law at UTS and Gary Gill, Chartered Accountant for KPMG discussed the importance of Cyber Security, to gain allies to implement procedures, and to justify the value of a Cyber Security Audit. After all, Cyber Security concerns more than the Information Technology (IT) department.
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, Business should pay more attention to the security of organisation’s connections. It seems like every week there are new headlines about hackers bringing an organisation to its knees. The stolen funds, bad publicity, and embarrassing revelations are front page news. How can you protect your organization from these issues? The best protection is to implement plans and procedures. And the best way to demonstrate the needs for those procedures is to perform a Cyber Security audit and implement the resulting recommendations.
