Cyber Security in a Hyperconnected World

Cyber Security Information Security

January brings with it the return of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. As another round of discussion and planning takes place, we’re reflecting on last year’s research on cyber security and look forward to further updates from world leaders on the topic.

In our recent feature on, we analysed last year’s report, ‘Risk and Responsibility in a Hyperconnected World’, published by the World Economic Forum in 2014 – and produced in partnership with McKinsey & Company.

In a world where information is becoming more accessible every day, with instant data access possible from around the globe, improving information governance and security measures is paramount in addressing the increased levels of cyber risk presented by hyperconnectivity.

The original report discusses the increased need for a ‘robust, coordinated system of global cyber resilience’ in order to reduce the risks of cyber crime and cyber attacks. In our commentary article, we deconstruct the report – examining the validity of its conclusions and covering the following topics:

  • Why are so many organisations at risk of cyber attacks?
  • How can we address the risk of cyber crime sustainably?
  • Can we put a price on the economic impact of cyber crime?
  • How accurate is the 2014 report?
  • Why is cyber security so far behind?
