On the horizon: Eight cyber security priorities

Looking beyond the digital shifts created from the pandemic – remote, secure work environments, digital engagement and customer service – this hyperconnected world will likely face expanding cyber risks on multiple global fronts.

Cybercriminals are using increasingly sophisticated tools and technologies, extending the challenge organisations face in securing and building tailored cyber defence and support.

KPMG’s annual Cyber security considerations 2022 report identifies eight considerations that leaders should prioritise to help mitigate and minimise the impact of cyber-attacks while protecting customers, data and sustainability in a digital world.

Translation is a big CISO challenge: explaining risk dynamics to the board and operating committees in terms of collaboration and cooperation. They should articulate that they’re not trying to stop the business, and instead supporting to enhance the trust of their consumers, investors and partners. Security should be a shared responsibility model, owned by everyone.
