Cybersecurity – keeping pace in a rapidly evolving landscape

The cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving with the discovery of high-profile breaches such as the recent SolarWinds incident, which affected a number of US Government agencies. In that case it was found that a software update by a private company enabled a widespread cyber intrusion that went undetected for almost a year.

The SolarWinds incident highlights a number of concerns — no organisation is safe from unwanted cyberattacks, breaches can go unnoticed for several months, and the CSO must be vigilant about the cybersecurity health of their organisation’s supply chain.
