Cyber security threats are a continually evolving risk management issue for business. And as we become more digitised and connected through the internet, businesses will only become more exposed to cyber security threats.

Once a company's security has been breached, repairing the relationship and trust between the business and its customers can be very difficult. That's why cyber security is now extending beyond the IT manager and moving into the boardroom as a major risk management issue.

Businesses pursuing opportunities online will need to stay informed, and take the appropriate responses to manage these risks.
