With a cyber rapid-response team (CRRT) now being deployed across Europe after a call for help from Ukraine, and a full-scale Russian invasion imminent, cyber attacks are highly likely. With the EU proactively responding to the threat, organisations should follow suit and ensure their protection is up to speed.

Whilst you can see tanks rolling across boarders an invisible war is also being waged. Cyber criminals are now armed to the teeth, with some receiving the backing of rouge states. Consequently, organisations are increasingly outwitted, outgunned, and outflanked by hackers. However, companies cannot just roll over, they must instead enforce a belt and braces approach to cyber-security.  

Organisations find themselves at the centre of a cyber war. More stories are breaking of devastating breaches, exposing more vulnerable data than ever before. No matter what size the company, no one is safe from cyber-attackers without a carefully regimented plan for protection, detection and response.

Cyber criminals don’t take holidays, so 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.
