Digital Vision for Cyber Security

Understanding the new cyber security paradigm

A more automated cyber security approach is essential to address the sheer scale, complexity and volatility of risks in the digital age.

As Robert S. Mueller, ex-Director of the FBI once said, we cannot undo the impact of technology – nor would we want to. We must use our connectivity to stop those who seek to do us harm. At Atos, we believe that data, combined with human intelligence and insight, is key to fighting today’s threats. We harness automation and machine learning to understand – and predict – the threat landscape. We’re also getting ready for the next digital shockwaves – not least the arrival of quantum computing. Yet with the attack surface expanding, cyber security is no longer just for the IT department. It’s an executive leadership issue involving every individual in an organisation.

Eight lessons from three attacks

 

The CloudHopper, WannaCry and NotPetya cyber attacks had important lessons for businesses.

The Cyber Security Challenge

With large-scale cyber attacks now a distinct possibility, the lines of defence have moved into every part of our public and private infrastructures. In all sectors, ongoing digital transformation must have cyber security in-built. Experience tells us that with the right tools, skills and cyber awareness in place, we can respond – and stop – attacks extremely quickly. Our Digital Vision for Cyber Security examines the fast-evolving threat landscape and what steps businesses must take to ensure they’re protected.
