Organisations are increasingly using technology and the internet to serve clients better and improve their operational efficiencies. Information security in such a digitally enabled environment is a big concern. The risk is not merely a technology issue but originates from inside organisations through disgruntled or careless employees, social media use and vulnerabilities of third party contractors.
