    We were delighted to see so many of you at our Cyber Summit last month. From start to finish there wasn’t a spare seat in sight, and feedback has been hugely positive. We’ll be launching a dedicated page on our website this week, so keep your eyes peeled.
    As the year gets underway, businesses are being encouraged to adopt cyber security best practices to mitigate the increasing threat of cyber attacks – it’s something we emphasised in last month’s bulletin. Therefore, it is useful to know what dangers might be more prevalent than others on the threat horizon. With this in mind, this month’s feature article addresses what to look out for and highlights areas of particular concern that all businesses should be aware of.
    Other articles include the NCSC’s risk management guidance for organisations of all sizes, and a report on the recent personal breach of Amazon’s founder, highlighting the significant risk insider threat poses to business.
    The survival of law firms will depend on how well they are able to evolve their cyber strategy. ITC’s Malcolm Taylor, speaks to Lawyer Monthly on how the legal profession might need to be more vigilant than other industry sectors when it comes to protecting against cyber breaches. Additionally, ITC hosted its Fraud Prevention Forum earlier this month, tailored to what’s coming next in the world of retail fraud. Following on from this, ITC’s Kevin Whelan spoke to Retail Sector magazine on the true impact of loyalty card fraud and how it is not a victimless crime.
