Report on Cyber Crime Outlines Security Cycle to Help Organisations

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jul 24, 2014) - A new report published by Computacenter is outlining the security cycle in order to help tackle and prevent cyber crime amongst organisations.

To ensure improvement efforts are focused on the right areas, organisations must first understand where they are and where they want to be with their security position. They need to assess. They need to audit. And they need to act.

The global annual loss from cyber crime is roughly $300bn, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. With these relentless cyber threats emerging, organisations must grasp the true end-to-end visibility of the security cycle.

With security no longer constrained by any perimeter, these activities must encompass a wide range of risks across a wide range of end-points. Given such complexity, it's not surprising that a quarter of organisations have never carried out any form of security risk assessment.

Security assessments should span each stage of the attack cycle -- before, during and after -- and pinpoint areas for improvement. Working with an external partner will not only simplify but also accelerate the assessment process -- and the closing of any gaps.
