Key Cyber Risk Findings 2017

  1. Awareness of cyber risk has increased as the problem grows – but concrete actions have not changed
  2. Despite concerns about the increasing cyber threat, organisations remain complacent about reviewing and testing their own cyber resilience (and the cyber resilience of their suppliers)
  3. Cyber security is still (wrongly) seen as being primarily an IT issue
  4. The privacy landscape is changing – both in Australia and overseas
  5. The increasing uptake of cyber insurance indicates some willingness to act on managing cyber risk
