Enterprise Content Management

Data culture is the collective behaviours and beliefs of people who value, practice and encourage the use of data to improve decision-making. As a result, data is woven into the operations, mindset and identity of an organisation. A data culture equips everyone in an organisation with the insights they need to be truly data-driven.

Financial institutions across Australia are finally waking up to the reality that cyber security threats and attacks are constantly evolving, and the bad actors behind them are relentless. Not only this, but they are becoming more and more sophisticated and advanced in terms of what they will use to launch a cyber attack. 

It strikes me as paradoxical that businesses feel very secure in using artificial intelligence to let people know, for example, when it is safe to make a lane change at 100 kilometres per hour, yet they are reticent to use the same technology to classify and manage information through its lifecycle. Artificial Intelligence is used almost every minute of every day, in nearly every smart device we own. 

Air Marshal Darren Goldie - Australia's new National Cyber Security Coordinator, has confirmed multiple government departments and agencies have been affected by the attack on HWL Ebsworth in May.

A 12 month study of recent ransomware trends by cloud security company Zscaler found the barrier of entry has decreased, while cyberattacks have grown in sophistication, due to the prevalence of RaaS, a model where threat actors sell their services on the dark web for 70-80% of ransomware profits.
