In the world of cyber risk, we are dealing with unprecedented events. Apart from headline grabbing attacks such as the global malware incident that impacted Mondelēz’s business and the Russian military-run global cyber-attack, NotPetya, we are now seeing an epidemic of cyber attacks. Concern has shifted from dealing with data being stolen and sold on the dark Web to handling serious ransomware and destructive attacks, where attackers are looking for immediate monetary output.

Everything goes down, including email, calendars, Skype and VOIP, leaving a company unable to operate or communicate.
