Caveris Christmas Annual
Season's Greetings to you, and very best wishes for the New Year. May the Holiday Season bring only happiness and joy to you and I hope that you manage to get some downtime with friends and family to unwind and re-charge.
For those people out there interested in fighting the battle against cyber crime, with a few minutes free to take a breath over the holiday period, I thought I would take this opportunity to put together a selection of some our our favourite posts from the last few months in one place.
I have also included some connections to a couple of resources from 3rd parties that I have been following recently and found very helpful.
No Christmas annual would be complete without a puzzle. Take the challenge at the end of the post if you enjoy a good crossword.
As a starter I would like to share an article that I came across today on CNET today that is very sobering.
This article highlights how Cyber crime is on the increase and cites high profile examples throughout the year. Many of these occurred because organisations failed to do the basics and put in place effective controls to protect their businesses and customers.
“The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.”
This article provides 6 practical steps that you can take to be The Boss and manage Cyber Security like Napoleon
Although there is an increasing emphasis on security accreditation having a badge of honour does not necessarily mean that your organisation is taking all of the measures necessary on an ongoing basis to protect its information assets.
Accreditations have no value if organisations do not follow through.
Although standards like ISO 27001 provide a framework to implement stronger information & cyber security processes they do not address what you need to do down at the coal face to implement practical controls. This article explores some of the issues.
I first came across Greg earlier on this year and have been following him ever since. He offers lots of practical advise on steps that organisations can take to improve their information and cyber security capabilities. All of his commentary is taken from many years of real world experience help commercial and government organisations protect their information assets.
If you have not come across him already worth it is worth following Greg's articles on LinkedIn.
In this article I talk about our team's personal experience of managing Cyber Security for one of the largest banks in the world and how we turned those experiences into a software solution to help organisations implement more discipline and rigour in their Cyber Security Processes.
Bianca Soare's post provides a directory of the top places to look for advice on Cyber Security. Worth taking a look if you are looking for inspiration.
Our Christmas annual would not be complete without this. If you think you got the answers right email us at [email protected].uk and we will send you a Caveris T-shirt.
