Alan Brill, Kroll Advisory senior managing director, said the report tackles “issues organizations aren’t talking about, but should be.”
The cyber issues found by Kroll include “vampire data” where organizations don’t know of the existence of data until it is attacked, utilizing forensics in the wake of a cyber breach, and how hackers are “out to destroy your company” and not just steal data.
The fourth trend in 2013 is a rise of organizations disclosing cyber attacks because it is impossible to keep it a secret.
Tim Ryan, Kroll Advisory managing director, said “2013 will definitely not be a time to employ the same old tactics.”
Ryan added that “2013 will require a review of information security governance, identification of information risk and controls, and preparation for the inevitable: a breach of sensitive data, a looming threat for every organization.”
