As cybersecurity risk continues to evolve and threats become more sophisticated, organisations are starting to invest more in measures to mitigate risks and protect their business. For some organisations, cybersecurity has become a critical investment and is a top board concern. For other organisations, it can be more difficult to treat cybersecurity with the priority that is required for several reasons...
Phishing attacks are one of the most common methods of cybersecurity attack, with 2023 witnessing a record of around 4.7 million attacks logged by a single source. It is estimated that around 3.4 billion spam messages are sent each day and the rate of growth has been approximately 150% year-on-year since 2019 with predictions that 2024 will be even higher.
In an era where data is the lifeblood of organisations, safeguarding sensitive information has never been more crucial. ISO 27001 is a guiding light for organisations navigating the intricate landscape of information security.
Originating from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), this framework provides a systematic approach to managing and protecting valuable data assets. From confidential customer information to proprietary organisation processes, ISO 27001 offers a structured methodology to identify, assess, and mitigate risks associated with information security.

Having an effective cyber incident response procedure is essential to ensure businesses remain resilient against malicious attacks. As the focus shifts more towards cloud and online operations, organisations must proactively identify potential risks before they can become a damaging data breach or other cybersecurity issues. But how can organisations make sure that their cyber incident response procedures are sufficient? Testing your organisation’s strategy for identifying, responding to, and mitigating incidents should be a key element of ensuring digital safety and security.
Dependency on mobile apps for daily tasks has increased exponentially. However, this has also made mobile applications an attractive target for cybercriminals seeking access to confidential information. This is why it's imperative to understand the importance of protecting our mobile apps.
To safeguard sensitive data, businesses must prioritise mobile application security and protect it from potential cybersecurity threats. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are constantly evolving their tactics and are targeting mobile apps as a gateway to gain access to sensitive data. Therefore, businesses must ensure their mobile apps are secured from cybersecurity threats. This blog explores the various threats that mobile apps face and explains how mobile app penetration testing can help mitigate these vulnerabilities.
Businesses of all sizes are vulnerable to cyber threats, from data breaches to cyber attacks. The consequences of a security breach can be devastating, resulting in the loss of sensitive data, reputational damage, and even legal implications. To minimise the risk of such incidents, organisations need to take a proactive approach to their cybersecurity strategy. One way to do this is through threat modelling.
A data breach could take over 100 days to be spotted. An additional 60 days may be needed to recover from it. However, you can recover from a breach within 30 days with a recovery plan, saving you resources. Your recovery team’s swift reaction to any signs of a data breach will help you recover as soon as possible.
As the use of technology in the workplace continues to grow, so does the importance of cybersecurity. Large corporations are frequently targeted by hackers, but smaller enterprises may be even more appealing targets as they may not be able to devote as much attention to setting up cybersecurity protocols and are thus simpler to breach. Despite the increasing awareness of cybersecurity threats, many employees still do not take the necessary precautions to protect their data and devices.
Version 4.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was released at the end of March 2022. At the time of writing, we now have less than one year until the previous version, 3.2.1, is retired and can no longer be used for new assessments.
