It is difficult to avoid reading about various forms of targeted attacks that take place against companies and authorities these days. The current threat landscape to our society, at large, has become increasingly critical and tangible. It places higher demands on security awareness of the individual, the citizen, and the employee. Organizations need to strengthen their resilience against an attack.
To reach out to more people and thus contribute to raising awareness on a broader scale, we have made a film that touches on the topic of human risk. Especially in the context of information and cyber security, where the techniques used is referred to as “Social Engineering“. Our colleagues show how difficult it is to protect yourself from attacks where our human weaknesses are exploited. With this video, we want to highlight an attacker’s methods of accessing classified information, how individuals and organizations can more easily identify a potential attack, and how best to protect against it. We, as part of the society, need to be constantly up to date as the playing field of cyber is constantly changing. We hope that this will give you a good insight into how well your organization is equipped to reduce the human risks that often can be used to improperly access your information assets. In this way, this film can be a contributing factor in strengthening your awareness and our overall resilience.
Security is about companies and organizations’ ability to achieve their goals. Understanding and controlling our risks has been done by a few industries for a long time, some of them have the help of regulations and legislation while others do not have the same industry standards, controls, and follow-up in place. IT Governance and security are areas where we in the EU will lack sufficient capacity and expertise for many years to come, so we as suppliers, authorities, and organizations, both private and public, need to work together to protect and secure our society.
In a world of constant change, improvement and sometimes deterioration, the need for security has never been greater. For a company to achieve its overall goals of development, efficiency, and innovation, we must not only manage a security debt, but we must also cost-effectively take on a journey of change that creates sustainable organizations.
