Ensuring that an organisation is protected against cyber attack requires more than just firewalls and passwords. Putting the right strategy in place and a risk focused cultural mindset are also essential components. As part of the Cyber conference at CeBIT 2016, Stan Gallo of KPMG Forensic gave a keynote address on how organisations can protect themselves against cyber attack.
