Hi Francesca

08/12/2017
Cyber Risk Consultant, Deloitte

There are a variety of challenges facing our clients, including;
- Challenges complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will be enforced in May 2018.
- Reducing the risk against growing threats such as phishing e-mails and ransomware
- Improving cyber security culture and awareness throughout our clients organisation

Other challenges include being able to sufficiently identify cyber risks and implement mitigating actions to reduce the level of risk the organisation is exposed to.

Francesca thank you. Which of these are you currently most focused on?

Cyber Risk Consultant, Deloitte

My primary focus has been on ensuring that a sufficient level of cyber security has been applied across my clients. For example, ensuring that staff have annual training on cyber security, access privileges are appropriately managed to systems, physical security controls have been applied etc. However, the focus varies depending on the area within Cyber you are aligned to.
