Cyber Security: More Control, Less Risk

Cyber Security Information Security

In our recent feature on, we discussed the importance of effective cyber security when it comes to protecting an organisation’s information assets. In our article we discussed the importance of technologists focussing more on threats and controls and less on risk in order to build an effective Cyber Security Practice.

Our article shines a light on the typically risk focused nature of the industry and why shifting that focus onto the implementation of effective controls to protect an organisation against real threats is key in effective Cyber Security. We also discuss the disconnect in viewpoints between technologists and business users – and how this can lead to a dangerous position, whereby an organisation develops a false sense of protection against cyber threats and cyber-crime.

The full feature on covers:

  • The relationship between controls and business productivity
  • The technologist’s vs. the business user’s viewpoint
  • Effectively removing the disconnect between differing perceptions
  • Where to focus in order to improve cyber security measures
