As 2019 draws to a close, Malcolm Taylor (ITC’s Director Cyber Security) thoughtfully and provokingly does a round-up of all things cyber that have happened throughout the year. With 2020 vision (he doesn’t quite have) he makes some predictions for the year ahead too.  Read more >

In the final bulletin of 2019, we take a retrospective look back at the good, the bad and the ugly in the world of cyber, and a clearer peek into next year. We think 2020 will be the year of endless puns. We have also recently made another exciting announcement, if you’ve missed it, read on.

US-based company IronNet Cybersecurity have expanded globally, bringing collective defence and information sharing to the UK for the first time. ITC has formed a new partnership with IronNet and launched the UK’s first advanced collective defence platform, providing IronDefense and IronDome as managed services to its enterprise customers. You can find the full press release on the right.

As we build on the topic of collective defence and the notion that businesses are better protected when they co-operate, our theme for our upcoming annual summit is Collaboration; creating a vision for 2020. Featuring talks from industry leaders and business experts, register to attend on Thursday 30th January via the link on the right. We’ll be running a cyber exercise which illustrates the importance of companies, sectors, economies and even nations working together to defend against threats. The cyber war isn’t a game for one player. It will be a fun but critical masterclass, one not to miss.

As we continue the puns, and as previously used, hindsight is indeed 2020. The Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019 has been released and provides a thorough summary of research collected from UK businesses and charities. Approaches to cyber security, incidence and impact of breaches or attacks as well as dealing with them are detailed. Find the full publication on the right.

Finally, as always, we highly recommend you keep up to date with our Threat Horizons. These highlight the more critical vulnerabilities you need to be aware of and include steps for remediation. Should you need assistance on anything cyber security related then do get in contact.

From all at ITC Secure, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Collective Defence comes to the UK
ITC Secure unveils partnership with IronNet Cybersecurity providing collective defence as a managed service. Today, detecting threats in a network is only the first step in defence. Sharing and benefitting from that intelligence at network speed enables companies, sectors, economies and even nations to defend themselves collectively, and repel more attacks and defeat more attackers, more quickly.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has released their survey for 2019. Featuring quantitative and qualitative research from UK businesses and charities, the Cyber Security Breaches Survey helps organisations understand the nature and significance of the cyber security threats they face, and what others are doing to stay secure.
