Over recent months I’ve heard a lot of discussion about the relative merits of Cyber Essentials (and Cyber Essentials Plus) and ISO27001. I thought I’d write a post outlining those in a structured way so that it’s easier for people to make a choice between them.
Welcome to the first post in this new blog series called Turn it Off and On Again. Hello! My name is Matt and I am PGI’s Communications and Content Executive. This blog series is about my experiences of the world of cyber and how, despite all the scare mongering we see on a near daily basis, cyber security isn’t all that scary or confusing.
A report released by PWC indicates UK CEOs now consider cyber risk to be the second largest threat their organisation faces, coming second only to an employee skills gap.
Most organisations and people have information about themselves on the Internet. Companies advertise with it and people share tonnes of personal information with their friends and families. With this wealth of information so widely available, it is little wonder that criminals can and do use it for malicious purposes.
A large number of our reports last year featured regular stories about the threat of Ransomware. Research by Trend Micro, published just before Christmas, found that new ransomware families soared by 400% between January and September in 2016.
The rising threat to organisations from cyber criminals and hackers has led to the number of vacancies in the internet security job sector increasing sharply, however, the number of eligible workers continues to fail to meet demand.
It’s that time of the year again folks when security experts release the most commonly-used passwords of the previous year and, needless to say, it makes for some pretty depressing reading (again).
PGI is delighted to announce that its Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) course has been accredited as GCHQ Certified Training.
PGI's Steve Mair shares his views on the security skills gap.
It’s 2017 and as we all get back into the swing of things some of us may be thinking about a change in career. With demand for cyber security professionals at record highs why not make the leap into one of the fastest growing sectors in the world.
