Without strong cybersecurity, backdoors will remain open

A leading authority on cybersecurity has warned that there are still too many mistakes being made by companies and individuals who are being targeted and exposed to scams operated by sophisticated criminals who can cause significant disruption to businesses. “Without strong or even adequate cybersecurity, backdoors will remain open for bad actors to access and do harm,” said Rob Wainwright, a partner at Deloitte who was formerly executive director of Europol, the EU’s law enforcement agency coordinating global operations against cyber, criminal and terrorist networks. A respected authority on cybersecurity, he will address a high-profile Cyber Security Transatlantic Policy Forum in The Brehon, Killarney, Co Kerry on Friday, 10 May. Wainwright said the threat landscape is becoming much more complex and it keeps increasing in scale with cybercriminal groups stealing data from the banking sector, health sector and many others, and selling it on for exploitation in fraud markets.
