Cyber Security is Everyone’s Issue


The Ongoing Threat

  • Not just phishing (or spear phishing)

  • DDoS is ever present and an increasing threat with the rise of connected devices in the Internet of Things (e.g. Mirai Botnet)

  • Stingray/IMSI Catcher for mobile intercept

  • According to the Flashpoint Business Risk Intelligence Report, 2017 in 2016 Cyber Criminals increasingly directly targeted organisations

    • Gain information for insider trading
    • User databases (e.g. LinkedIn, Yahoo)
    • Fraud against financial institutions
  • According to the report such threats are “highly-likely to worsen the potential impact of successful attacks for both customers and targeted entities.”

How to Reduce the Threat?

  • There is no “One Size Fits All” solution to Cyber Security
  • Attacks vary and change on a regular basis
  • Often the best we can hope for is to educate our people and do what we can to mitigate the risk
  • One thing we can do is to protect our data and any data we hold pertaining to our customers via encryption
  • This will become law in May 2018
    • EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
    • Applies to all EU member states from 25 May 2018 (prior to Brexit)


Data Security using Encryption

  • According to the Internet Society (, “Strong encryption is an essential piece to the future of the world’s economy”
    • “Encryption is a technical building block for securing infrastructure, communications and information. It should be made stronger and universal…”
  • Thales 2017 Global Encryption Trends shows a continuing upwards trend for companies employing encryption a component of their cyber security policies.
    • This trend is often driven by the business leaders rather than the IT Department
