Understand the cyber challenges of tomorrow
Information and communication technology (ICT) dependencies are found in every realm of our current societies. Failures or disruptions may affect many million functions (systems) and even more people, SMEs and large organisations. Understanding the cyber risk is increasingly important, but there are so many risk factors that it is difficult to oversee what the cyber challenges are. In addition, new ICT innovations emerge at a quick pace. This means that it is not enough to look at what happened today or yesterday. Take the lessons identified yesterday and learn them tomorrow.
