Businesses can use it as a reference against their org’s current policies and practices to keep their people, data and assets secure.
Here’s a sample of some of our experts comments:
"Cybersecurity is not just about protecting data; it's about safeguarding the digital realm, where intellect meets innovation, and where wisdom becomes an armour against the shadows of the web. For me password best practises are a must-have, just as is a defence-in-depth approach to email security. Those two vectors are responsible for a large portion of breaches."

"In the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats, the wise defender perceives not just vulnerabilities but the intricate interplay of code and human behaviour, deciphering the digital symphony with intellect and insight. My key focus for businesses to consider is adopting a whole of business, security first culture, from your leadership through to your frontline workers. The human element is vital in defending against bad actors. By extension, I also strongly advocate for Access Control and the principle of least privilege. Only grant your team access to the resources and assets that are necessary to perform their role."
