Cyber Security is Everyone’s Responsibility, says the BCI
Business Continuity Awareness Week is an annual campaign run by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) to raise the profile of the industry and highlight the need for every organisation, regardless of size, sector or location, to have an effective business continuity programme, one that will allow them to manage through disruptions and enable to continue operation as normal as possible.
The theme of the campaign this year is cyber security, a topic that is often raised as an issue by business continuity professionals. In fact, the BCI’s Horizon Scan Report revealed cyber attacks and data breaches as the top two concerns that they face. Cyber security incidents happen all the time, with two-thirds of organisations being affected by at least one during the previous year, according to the BCI’s Cyber Resilience Report.
When they do happen, the loss of IT, loss of data, loss of website and loss of reputation, can all have a disruptive effect. In the build up to the campaign, the BCI has produced a series of six posters that all reveal an action that each and every individual can take to help improve their organisation’s (and their own personal) cyber security.
