Cybersecurity threats are evolving with ever-increasing levels of sophistication. In the wake of a series of high profile data breaches, US President Obama recently commented that the nation’s “economic prosperity in the 21st Century will depend on cyber security”. Without question, cybersecurity is now a global problem facing an array of companies, firms, organizations and governmental bodies. Companies can incur significant costs and reputational damage as a result of cyberattacks, including costs related to the deployment of additional personnel and security technologies to protect against future attacks, loss of revenue, theft of intellectual property, loss of competitive advantages, off-line websites, litigation costs and loss of customer good will.
