Firms need to minimise risks

first_imgBusinesses must carry out thorough risk assessments with board-level supportif they are to combat cybercrime. The Cybercrime Survey 2001, released last week, shows that nearly two-thirdsof firms have experienced a serious e-business crime in the past year. Morethan half also expect cybercrime to rise over the next three years. Employers need to keep up to date with e-business threats as well as raiseuser awareness about security, explained Andrew Beard, a director in ITsecurity practice at Pricewaterhouse Coopers and co-author of the report. He said, “My advice is that as you become increasingly involved in e-businessa thorough assessment of risks is undertaken with board-level support.” The report shows that nearly 40 per cent of the 148 companies surveyed donot have a board director responsible for cybercrime risk management and havenot performed a board-level risk assessment of their e-business. Rogue members of staff continue to be a threat to e-business, with 13 percent of incidents carried out by former employees and 11 per cent by currentstaff. Hackers and computer viruses are the greatest threat, claims the jointresearch by the CBI, PwC, Fraud Advisory Panel, Armor Group and theInternational Fraud Prevention Research Centre. www.cbi.org.uk Related posts:No related photos.
