Businesses in the media and communications industry are uniquely vulnerable to cyber crime. High-profile products and complex production processes, coupled with the extensive use of outside vendors, give cyber criminals more opportunities to attack.
These businesses keep the world connected. Our economies and business infrastructures are built using these services. In order to meet our communications needs, this industry builds and operates complex networks and store vast amounts of sensitive data. These two factors combined make this sector highly attractive to cyber criminals.
Businesses in this industry find themselves under fire from two specific types of cyber attack. On one side, there are direct attacks from criminals who aim to access their organisation, network operations and data. On the other side are indirect attacks which target the company’s subscribers.
