Data breaches and cyber attacks are, unfortunately, becoming a regular occurrence.

Millions of Americans have been victims – the United States alone accounted for 47% of the world’s data breaches in 2017.

With the global cost of data breaches set to rise to €2.1 trillion by 2019, it’s a threat that organisations can no longer afford to ignore.

Cyber risk management can help mitigate breaches. ISO 27001 sets out a best-practice approach to cyber risk management that can be adopted by all businesses, large or small.
