Digital transformation: Begin with cyber security in mind

27 October 2020

It is not uncommon for organisations to digitally transform processes and data without a strategic or proactive approach to data privacy and cyber security. With more people working from home, the transition from office-based network access to remote/home access has created unique capacity, operational and cyber security challenges.

Organisations who undergo digital transformations often make significant productivity gains, via increased speed and access to data, more rapid data analysis, and related data storage cost savings. However, many of these same organisations have encountered costly cyber attacks in the form of socially-engineered spear-phishing attacks, business email compromise or spoofing attacks, and/or ransomware attacks. This is a symptom of inadequate or reactive cyber security approaches during their digital transformation.

So, what exactly does it mean to begin an organisation’s digital project or transformation with cyber security in mind? Simply said, it means starting all digital project planning by asking the right cyber security questions up-front.
