Cyber & Technology

With the ever-increasing reliance of business and industry on all things digital, a cyber-attack or technology failure can have a major impact on a business’ ability to function.

In this digital age cyber-attacks are never far from the news with the severity and frequency increasing month on month. Previously large businesses and corporations were the targets for hackers, but this has now developed to all sectors including mid-range business, SMEs, public sector, education sector and religious organizations being the targets for hackers.

The severity and complexity of cyber-attacks are ever increasing and in many instances will completely disable a business’ ability to function. Speed is therefore of the essence and having the right people/resources engaged at an early stage following an attack is critical to a successful outcome.
