Cyber Guidance for Organisations

Protecting your organisation from cyber related risks can seem daunting but there are simple steps you can take to ensure you have the basics in place.

Cyber is often considered to be an issue for an IT department since it is often associated with a need for technical knowledge. However, the input from an IT department or service provider is just one aspect of a good cyber security plan.

It can help to think of cyber security as the technical element – reducing risk by ensuring that devices and networks are protected from theft or damage. Cyber resilience, however, is taking an organisation-wide approach that combines cyber security with business continuity, thus enabling organisations to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyber-attacks and breaches.

Cyber resilience, therefore, needs to be led from the top down. And having a cohesive cyber security and cyber resilience plan is essential for organisations of all sizes, from micro through to large.
