From the 100 survey responses we have received so far, we have learnt the following:
Cybersecurity and privacy matters
A significant group of you feels up-to-date with protecting your devices and digital services (44%); some of you have implemented a few measures but are struggling to understand the ever-changing threat landscape (28%); and the other 28% feel overwhelmed and would find a starter kit helpful.
The majority of you (48%) is uncertain what privacy and compliance entails and would find hands-on advice helpful. 33% of you have started implementing some measures, but found the whole thing confusing. Only 19% seems to be fully compliant.
People also inquired into the possibility of working with checklists in order to ensure that they are on track with data protection and cybersecurity. Based on this feedback we are developing a set of checklists for your convenience. We are also working on including personalised action reports, which will provide you with hands-on guidance to keep your business safe and to help you build a trusting relationship with your clients.
With a view to your feedback the first checklist focuses on working remotely, covering the most essential data protection and cyber security points when you are on the road - easy and simple.
In addition, we are sourcing solutions and services in order to help you keep safe when working remotely and to meet clients’ expectations with regard to data protection and cybersecurity.
All the learning from the checklist we will incorporate in the ebook, now due out before February 2019.
We really appreciate having you on board - an update on the checklists is to follow.
