Here are a few things that you may have missed in digital, media & technology. Contact me if you want to talk about what these might mean for you.
- The RBA’s October Financial Stability Review contains a sobering section on cyber security – cyber attacks are up this year. The RBA expects financial services to do more to defend against inevitable cyber attacks. Not the easiest to navigate but well worth drilling into this for cyber security insights.
- Syniverse (no, me neither) admits it has been hacked – for many years, Syniverse has been exposed to malicious hackers who infiltrated their tech. Syniverse provide technology that connects and handles text messaging between operators (used to be called ‘middleware’). Shows that hacking is not a new threat but need to manage for the past as well as the future.
- McKinsey research shows cyber security maturity a challenge for many organisations. The research surveys cyber security maturity across many sectors with healthcare and financial services leading on maturity with technology, media and telecoms lagging.
These were prepared listening to the current AMRAP* Metro Top 10 chart, and are best enjoyed with a coffee – or whatever your choice.
Let me know if you want to talk about any of it.
