The companies will take serious measures to solve the problem of cyber-risk

News | 31.01.2018

As cyberattacks increasingly threaten all aspects of the business and grow in size and scope, companies will have to take new measures to solve the cyber security problem in a comprehensive manner, integrating it more aggressively into managing their enterprise risks, according to Aon's Cyber ​​Solutions specialists. The report describes a number of specific actions that, according to Aon, companies will take in 2018 to address cyber threats, as well as other cyber-trends that are expected this year.

"In 2017, cyber-attackers created chaos through a series of levers, from phishing attacks that affected political campaigns and crypto systems with extortion that penetrated operating systems globally. With the growth of the Internet of Things, we have also witnessed attacks on devices that have damaged the functionality of the device," said Jason J. Hogg, CEO of Aon Cyber ​​Solutions.

"In 2018, we expect increased cyber impact due to the convergence of three trends: firstly, the growing dependence of companies on technology, and secondly, the strengthening of the regulatory agencies' orientation to protect these consumers, and third, the growth in the value of non-physical assets. Impact will require an integrated approach to cybersecurity for both business culture and risk management. Leaders must adopt a coordinated approach based on cyber risk management, allowing them to better assess and mitigate risks in all corporate functions. "

The forecasts for 2018 indicate an increase in the scale and impact of cyberattacks, which means that companies will be forced to take more responsibility and monitor information security.
