10 things eft’s been reading this week
You aren’t as safe as you think
As prominent attacks continue against transport and logistics companies or even entire national sectors, it appears many aren’t taking the threat seriously enough or looking hard enough at themselves.
We found that 65% of logistics solution and service providers lack a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). A report from Microsoft and Marsh found that few believe that their company is a threat to others but 43% said they probably wouldn't be able to protect themselves from cyber threats if they came from their third-party partners.
With this in mind, we explore ongoing attacks, areas of vulnerability and potential responses in this week’s 10 things.
