The Global Risks Report 2021 (16th Edition)

The immediate human and economic cost of COVID-19 is severe. It threatens to scale back years of progress on reducing poverty and inequality and to further weaken social cohesion and global cooperation. Job losses, a widening digital divide, disrupted social interactions, and abrupt shifts in markets could lead to dire consequences and lost opportunities for large parts of the global population. The ramifications—in the form of social unrest, political fragmentation and geopolitical tensions—will shape the effectiveness of our responses to the other key threats of the next decade: cyberattacks, weapons of mass destruction and, most notably, climate change.

Cyber Resilience in the Oil and Gas Industry: Playbook for Boards and Corporate Officers

The oil and gas sector’s future relies on digitalization to manage a vast network of global energy assets and operations to maximize profits, improve safety and efficiency, and minimize emissions in the midst of a volatile market. The new wave of digital solutions integrates operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), leveraging the power of emerging technologies (e.g. automation and artificial intelligence), to help the oil and gas industry innovate for the energy transition. This shift exposes critical infrastructure and entire supply chains to cyber risks, making cybersecurity a core requirement of the business model.

This playbook for boards and corporate officers provides guidance to those responsible for implementing cyber resilience to improve the industry’s readiness to mitigate cyber risks.

WEF, NACD & ISA to collaborate on Global Cyber Principles for Boards of Directors

World Economic Forum (WEF), National Association for Corporate Directors (NACD) og Internet Security Alliance (ISA) meldte ud i november 2o20, at de påbegynder et samarbejde, med det formål at udvikle vejledninger til direktioner og bestyrelser for, hvordan de bedst håndterer cybersikkerhed i deres organisationer.

Grunden til samarbejdet bunder i resultater fra WEFs 2020 Global Risk Report, der bl.a. viser, at Cybercrime er en af de største risici for virksomheder i 2021, og at op mod 6 trillioner dollars vil blive tabt til cyberkriminalitet.

Det er stadig phishing, ransomware og lækager, der står øverst på sikkerhedsdagsordenen.
Henrik Larsen, chef for DKCERT og bestyrelsesmedlem i Rådet for digital sikkerhed skriver: ” … cyberkriminelle rykker utroligt hurtigt. Næsten så hurtigt, at de kender vores næste skridt, før vi har taget det.” Trusselsbilledet understreger behovet for at have styr på beredskabet. Det er netop temaet for årets trendrapport, hvor fem eksperter skriver om forskellige vinkler på beredskab.

Corona giver øgede cybersikkerhedsudfordringer

COVID-19 pandemien giver forsat øgede cybersikkerheds udfordringer. Virksomheder i alle industrier bør forberede sig på at udfordringerne har langvarige konsekvenser for virksomhederne.

Overvejelser
  • Planlæg måneder frem og inkluder informationsikkerheds monitorering og response, selv under karantæne forhold.
  • COVID-19 har gjort det nemmere for hackere at ty til social engineering, hvorfor phishing kampagner er stigende.
  • Virksomheder bør rådgive medarbejdere om cybersikkerhed og hjemmearbejde best practice. Få gode råd og tips her.
  • COVID-19 vil påvirke økonomien og driften af virksomheder, og derfor vil finansielle og budget udfordringer influere informationssikkerheden i virksomheden. Vær opmærksom på, hvordan I prioriterer og evt. outsourcer driften af jeres informationssikkerhed.
