Risk or reward: can we control cyber risks?

Can we ever control cyber risks? And how do cyber risks stack up, against the other challenges facing business?

Cyber threats have risen steadily over the last few years, due in part to changes in the way we work and the move to digital business. And those changes are vital to business growth, and efficiency in public services.

But at the same time, conventional risks have not gone away. Only recently we’ve seen wildfires and floods. And we are still feeling the after effects of the global pandemic.

How does an organisation balance physical threats and cyber risks, against the opportunities from new ways of working? Can we reduce risks, through better approaches to security and data protection? And how do we measure, and mitigate, those risks we have to accept?

Our guests this week are Pauline Losson, director of cyber operations, and Todd Carroll, CISO, at CybelAngel.

They spoke to editor Stephen Pritchard about the changing face of (cyber) risk.
