The DPP has today published its Cyber Security Secrets report. Enabled by DPP member companies Fastly and Convergent Risks, Cyber Security Secrets contains advice from expert practitioners working across cyber, risk, compliance, threat intelligence, content security and more about protecting your organisation from cyber threats.
“Cyber attacks are now incessant and ingenious” says DPP Editorial Director Edward Qualtrough, the report author. “And senior leaders are becoming cognizant of just how smart they have to be in return. Most professionals are likely to be aware that getting the basics right is the most important thing. But this truism clearly isn’t enough, so what are the things that are really making a difference?”
Cyber Security Secrets presents a series of vignettes, anecdotes and action points from industry leaders: the things they wish they had known on the first day of the job.
The report confirms that those responsible for media security are becoming increasingly open minded to initiatives and approaches that are not included in cyber certification programmes. Cyber enemies are continually adapting their methods, so cyber allies have to do the same - and peer to peer advice is the best way of staying safe.
One key sentiment to emerge from the report was that users can no longer be blamed for breaches and cyber incidents. And while the experts agreed that nothing is more crucial than a focus on good cyber essentials, Cyber Security Secrets shows the innovative ways organisations are aligning IT security with the human factor to protect the media supply chain.
