Cybersecurity Risk Management
The world has been transformed into a global village thanks to the advancements in, inter alia, transportation and communication. Among those advancements, internet is by far the most important. Day by day, our dependence to the internet increases, so does the quantity and quality of the cyber-attacks, transcending even governments’ capacity to tackle them.Almost two thirds (66%) of companies in Belgium were victims of cybercrime according to a large-scale research funded by BELSCO, a Belgian federal government body for research policy. Cybercrime doesn’t have borders, the estimated global cost of cybercrime is about €525 billion in which the estimation for Europe and Central Asia floats around €170 billion.
According to German IT industry association BITCOM, more than half of the German companies suffered from cybercrime. It is estimated that this corresponds to a 55 billion euros’ worth of damage annually. In another research, conducted in collaboration with the UK Government, the cost of cybercrime to the UK is calculated to be £27bn (37 billion euro) per annum.
In this regard, cybersecurity risk management is becoming a fundamental part of the management function of every organisation, be it government or business.
