Cyber Risk Services

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. Deloitte’s cyber risk practice helps you reduce your exposure to cyber-attacks and respond in a secure, vigilant and resilient manner.

Deloitte’s leading Cyber Risk Services team helps organisations address pressing and pervasive strategic information and technology risks, such as cyber security, data leakage, identity and access management, data security breaches, operational resilience and system outages, privacy and application integrity. We provide industry-tailored solutions, using demonstrated methodologies and tools in a consistent manner, with the goal of enabling on-going, secure and reliable operations across the enterprise.

A daunting global challenge

Given how rapidly cybersecurity threats emerge and change, it can be hard for companies and regulators to keep up. The challenge is especially difficult for global companies, which must constantly combat an endless stream of cybersecurity threats while demonstrating regulatory compliance in all jurisdictions in which they operate.

Companies based in countries that already impose rigorous cyber integrity requirements may have an edge because they have already done a lot of the hard work necessary to clear a very high bar. On the other hand, companies based in countries with less rigorous requirements are most likely behind on the compliance maturity curve and may thus need to do more work to catch up.

Digital Directors

The board’s role in the cyber world

Cyber security threats are not just for information technology specialists anymore. Today, cyber security is drawing attention from the very top, and it has become a huge concern for corporate boards.

Responding to cyber threats

A change in paradigm

In this changing landscape, a shift must take place to adequately combat the challenge. The old approach has failed many organisations and cost the world billions of dollars. While we expect that advancements in technology will continue to disrupt the way we approach cyber risk, the objectives and principles identified in the paper attempt to provide the basis of the migration model that is still evolving – a must continue to do so. These mitigation are explored in the proposed Deloitte Cyber Security 3.0 model.

Cyber Security

The changing role of audit committee and internal audit

Among the most complex and rapidly evolving issues companies must contend with is cybersecurity. With the advent of mobile technology, cloud computing, and social media, reports on major breaches of proprietary information and damage to organisational IT infrastructure have also become increasingly common, thus transforming the IT risk landscape at a rapid pace.

International media reports on high-profile retail breaches and the major discovery of the Heartbleed security vulnerability posing an extensive systemic challenge to the secure storage and transmission of information via the Internet have shone a spotlight on cybersecurity issues. Consequently, this has kept cybersecurity a high priority on the agenda of boards and audit committees.

Information technology risks in financial services

What board members need to know — and do

Boards’ risk-related responsibilities at financial services companies have intensified, with governance of Information Technology (IT) risk becoming increasingly critical. However, IT risk may be the one risk that the typical financial services board member may be least prepared to oversee. IT risk-related challenges in financial services will grow in number and importance in the years ahead. This paper highlights select IT risks for boards of financial institutions to consider, and suggests strategies they can employ to better oversee them.

The (Evolving) Art of Risk Sensing

Risks of the present and future continue to change as the business world evolves with technological advancements and innovations. Risk-sensing capabilities and efforts need to be forward-looking and agile to transform risks arising from economic, market, regulatory and technological evolutions. A crucial component of a company’s risk management process, risk sensing supports risk and impact assessment to address risks across the entire relevant time horizon.

Risk sensing helps companies detect emerging risks to be mitigated before potentially significant damage or costs are incurred. It is also a platform for detecting emerging trends to enhance understanding of risk/reward tradeoffs inherent in value creation to improve resource allocations.

How cyber savvy is your organization?

In today’s environment, with the widespread use of technologies, you can’t be a responsible board member and not be concerned about cyber security.

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.

Networked Medical Device Cybersecurity and Patient Safety

Perspectives of Health Care Information Security Executives

Networked medical devices and other mobile health (mHealth) technologies are a double-edged sword: They have the potential to play a transformational role in health care but also may be a vehicle that exposes patients and health care providers to safety and cybersecurity risks such as being hacked, being infected with malware and being vulnerable to unauthorized access.

Patient safety issues—injury or death—related to networked medical device security vulnerabilities are a critical concern; compromised medical devices also could be used to attack other portions of an organization’s network. Click to read more.
