It wasn’t that long ago that the head of IT didn’t have an office. Instead, he usually sat in a room in a remote part of the building, filled with IT equipment. He didn’t attend management meetings, and no one paid much attention to him unless something went wrong. His role was to keep the computers and phones working, and not much else.
Even the most sceptical people can now see that cyber security is something we all need to take seriously. Whether it is as consumers, retailers, employees or management, it is in our interest to ensure that we are as equipped as possible to prevent cyber intrusions. In this new age of cyber warfare, no one is safe. It doesn’t matter how big or small your business is, how old you are or where you live.
