BDO’s cybersecurity stance: protecting a business starts with understanding a business
BDO supports Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Cybersecurity Awareness Month takes place each year in October. It is a joint effort between private industry and public agencies to help companies and individuals make better cybersecurity choices.
BDO supports Cybersecurity Awareness Month by promoting cybersecurity inside our network and towards our clients. Central to our thinking is that the cornerstone of cybersecurity is cooperation. As breaches impact people, processes and technology, IT and finance executives have to work together not only to put systems back online, but also to notify regulators, investors, filing insurance claims and compensating losses.
The finance executive today is a business partner who understands and integrates key drivers across business models and client accounts, generating exponential value. This ‘exponential’ CFO provides true cyber defence and resilience by leveraging the legacy ties that his role has to sourcing, systems, people, premises, assets and risk.
BDO's global cybersecurity practice
As a business grows, information sharing grows along with it – with vendors, contractors, partners, and clients. And every one of these digital relationships presents a new set of cyber vulnerabilities. The need for security and the way in which it is implemented must be balanced, thoughtfully, against the needs of an organisation to operate effectively, and to actively pursue its future goals. While it is impossible to eliminate all risk of a cyber attack, a well-designed pro-active cyber security program will minimise the negative impact on both short- and long-term business goals.
BDO’s Global Cybersecurity practice is comprised of professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds, including experienced IT, operations, and data privacy consultants, as well as forensic technology, business advisory, and accounting practitioners. We are built to provide comprehensive, customised services for each client, focusing on your specific operating model, technical demands, regulatory environment, and industry dynamics.
