Cyber-attacks are steadily increasing year on year. Organisations are constantly under threat with over two-thirds experiencing data breaches in 2017. Consequently, cyber security preparedness and resiliency are becoming increasingly important to the protection of an organisation’s information.

In this podcast Steve Durbin, Managing Director at the ISF discusses how organisations should approach running internal cybersecurity exercises to support breach identification, prevention and response.

The public release for the overview of the report is November 15.
