Cyber Security: What SMEs need to know
400% Increase in Stolen Identities, Average Cost of a breach is increasing exponentially, 42 people or groups involved in cyber-attacks appear on the FBI’s most-wanted list. The threat landscape in the world is changing and the need for cybersecurity in organisations, no matter the size has become more important than ever. Large organisations have dedicated budgets to deal with the cybersecurity problem however, Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are left to try combat the issue with little to no budget. Thomas Jreige, Managing Director of Focus Cyber Group will provide a briefing on the current threat landscape, the current issues that SMEs need to look out for when protecting information assets in their organisation and practical risk mitigation strategies to remain protected and not break the organisation’s budget.
Thomas founded Focus Cyber Group in 2017, in response to the growing threat to organisations of all sizes posed by today’s digital environment.
A strategic and innovative consultant, Thomas has over 20 years’ experience in industries including national security, critical infrastructure, banking and finance, mining, oil and gas, manufacturing and transportation. He has held senior positions in organisations leading and delivering Cyber Security advisory and consulting services in the areas of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and Operational Technology (OT) throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Middle East-North Africa (MENA).
With a reputation for his highly pragmatic approach, Thomas understands the commercial importance of strong security governance and how the implementation of intelligent and appropriate security controls supports business objectives. Embracing emerging technologies and change, he is always looking for ways to deliver improved security capabilities to clients.
