Information is the new currency of business, with instant accessibility across international, corporate and organizational boundaries. Most of the world is now connected via the internet. While this has enabled global connectivity and business growth, it has also fostered cyber modification, theft and destruction.

Attacks on information assets, whether malicious or inadvertent, can seriously disable or destroy an organization by damaging operations, brand and financial stability.
