Circa 2014. The cyber security landscape or the ‘ThreatScape’ as we call it, has changed, again. The emergence of new business models and technologies has seen a recent radical increase in vulnerabilities to which organisations are exposed. Modern organisations now operate as part of a complex, partially trusted eco- system comprising other organisations, a diverse range of third-party technologies, and end-users operating in a variety of organisational cultures. The need to meet organisational and business challenges such as increased productivity, lowered costs, and customer satisfaction has driven organisations to break the traditional ‘silo’ infrastructure model as they try to improve efficiency, engage more with customers and collaborate closely with partner organisations. Organisations have embraced cultures where employees work anytime and from anywhere.
