With the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices, cyber culture is growing more rapidly than cyber security. Everything that depends on cyberspace is potentially at risk.
Private data, intellectual property, cyber infrastructure, and even military and national security can be compromised by deliberate attacks, inadvertent security lapses, and the vulnerabilities of a relatively immature, unregulated global Internet. Working hand-in-hand with member firm clients, Deloitte helps organizations plan and execute an integrated cyber approach to harness the power of information networks to enhance business operations, increase mission performance, and improve customer support, without compromising security or privacy.
Changing the Game on Cyber Risk
The imperative to be secure, vigilant and resilient
Most reports on cyber security revolve around a common theme: despite heightened attention and unprecedented levels of security investment, the number of cyber incidents — and their associated costs — continues to rise. They typically point to the growing sophistication of hackers and other adversaries as a particularly intractable problem and some deliberate over whether being secure is even possible in today’s rapidly evolving landscape of cyber attacks. Important questions, though, remain unaddressed. In particular: what are the underlying reasons for this trend and how can organizations actually reverse it to start winning the cyber risk battle?

Cyber crime fighting
Enterprises have to go on the offense to protect themselves from a rising tide of cyber crime. Collective intelligence and human judgment supported by advanced security analytics can help.
As personal, commercial, and government activities continue to migrate to the digital realm, so do criminals. Large-scale cyber attacks are becoming more frequent and more costly for businesses in the United States. Attackers are better funded, more sophisticated, and better organized than in the past, often representing criminal networks or states. Dozens of US banks have suffered cyber attacks over the last year at the hands of foreign attackers.
As enterprises and government agencies increasingly adopt cloud, mobile, and social computing, information technology (IT) environments are becoming more difficult to defend. Increasingly, organizations need to accept that security breaches are inevitable.
