Cyber resilience

Building future-ready organisations

In the recent past, the cyber landscape witnessed a shift from petty online crimes to election meddling carried out by state-sponsored actors, large-scale ransomware attacks, and cyber espionage campaigns.

Cyber criminals have been increasingly targeting national critical infrastructure, including power grids and hospitals that often put people’s lives on the line.
