In recent years we’ve all witnessed greater convergence of IT, enterprise technology and operational technology within our organisations.
The pace of change has been dramatic and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. It’s this connection between hardware and software that is making cyber-attacks easier and more dangerous, penetrating to the core of our operations.
In light of the growing threat, the Government has this month published its National Cyber Security Strategy 2016 to 2021, which sets out its plan to make Britain secure and resilient in cyberspace.
The strategy places an emphasis on three key objectives: Defence, Deter and Develop. The Defence objective revolves around ensuring that
citizens, businesses and the public sector have the knowledge and ability to defend themselves from cyber-attack.
Atkins has published a report which looks at how business leaders can achieve this by ensuring their organisations are cyber resilient. This report is particularly relevant to those in the critical national infrastructure, defence, government and national security sectors, but has been designed to provide a strategic and practical introduction to the topic that will apply to the majority of organisations.
The report includes a contribution from General Sir Richard Barrons, former Commander Joint Forces Command and Chief of Staff of the UK
Armed Forces (until April 2016), as well as exclusive research designed to help highlight the challenges of creating a cyber resilient nation.
