Go-Ahead’s cyber security incident is a prime example of how defence strategies are fundamental for organisations to continue to function, unscathed by cybercriminals, since the organisation acted quickly in implementing its incident response. Transport remains a prime target for attacks as the consequences have the potential to cause widespread disruption to the nation.“Cyber criminals have built an impressive arsenal of weapons over recent years. Consequently, organisations are increasingly outwitted, outgunned, and outflanked by hackers. However, instead of just accepting their fate, companies batten down the hatches and root out vulnerabilities.  

Cyber criminals don’t take holidays, ensuring data is secure must be a 24/7 job. It only takes a single vulnerability to enable a breach. Whilst organisations cannot stop every attack, they need to understand how attacks occur and put in place the appropriate defences to protect what is often their most valuable asset, data.
