One of the main cyber-risks is to think they don’t exist. The other is to try to treat all potential risks.
Fix the basics, protect first what matters for your business and be ready to react properly to pertinent threats. Think data, but also business services integrity, awareness, customer experience, compliance and reputation.
– Stephan Nappo
