The people and business side of cybersecurity
Themes from the 2022 NZ Cyber Security Summit
As proud gold sponsors of the 2022 NZ Cyber Security Summit, we thought we’d take a closer look at themes covered over the two days, including the human aspects and how cybersecurity should accelerate, not limit innovation and performance.
People and cybercrime – causes, impacts, solutions
A strong theme in this year’s summit considered the human aspects of cybersecurity.
The summit’s keynote speech, centred on that, was presented by Tamāra Al-Salim, Co-chair at Digital Identity NZ and NZ Country Manager at Women in Identity. Customers are demanding more from companies on using and storing personal data while valuing easier access to digital services. It raises the stakes for organisations that need to invest in infrastructure to enable this while also building it around transparency, accountability and ethical data storage principles.
A panel discussion on the role of people rather than technology presented the solution’s other side. The panel explored how we can increase the technical resilience of New Zealand as a whole, build digital savviness into our work cultures and address the skills shortage in our cybersecurity workforce.
Cybersecurity as a core part of business innovation and performance
DMARC the best way forward
When you implement DMARC, you prevent forgery of your domain, protecting your employees, customers and supply chain partners from BEC attacks – and, therefore, 96% of cyberattacks – without limiting innovation or efficiency. It’s why the latest NZISM release has changed from a strong suggestion to a command: DMARC MUST be deployed on all domains.
But, to properly implement and maintain DMARC, you’ll need speciality expertise and a reporting platform – both of which are included in our DMARC wraparound service, DPS (Domain Protection Services). You get a reporting and configuration portal with AI-powered recommendations, a proven implementation plan and support along the way.
