Avatu launches cybersecurity fightback report with the New Statesman

Avatu has teamed up with one of the UK's best-known business and current affairs magazines to highlight how companies can effectively fightback against cybercriminals.

The special Cybersecurity Fightback edition in the New Statesman features advice from the Minister for the Digital Economy, Ed Vaisey, alongside thought leadership and recommendations from Avatu CEO, Joe Jouhal on how to face the leadership challenge which cybersecurity creates head-on and how not to be dazzled by the hype that sometimes surrounds cybersecurity.

In the report published nationwide, Joe explains that the fundamental issue for business is one of risk assessment, and tried-and-tested principles of mitigation to control the risk.

These mitigation layers - which are recommend by GCHQ, the government's cybersecurity advisors - will include policies, procedures, staff training and technology. But they will be different for every organisation, depending on what is most important to them.

It also features questions organisations should ask to assess the risk they face of cyber attack and data breaches. It urges people to consider insider risks as well as those from the outside.

There's an offer to innovative and inspiring companies to take a 30-day cybersecurity health check to be sure that their outdated defences have not already been breached.

Research shows that 66% of cybersecurity professionals believe a data breach is inevitable for most organisations. And if a breach has already happened, it takes on average more than 200 days to discover and deal with it.
