Sourcing Monthly January 2022
This month, discussions regarding the need for improved security efforts have been prominent. Analyses of security concerns in 2021 have shown a significant increase in cyber security and ransomware attacks. Annual reviews have flagged a changed threat landscape, with attacks increasing in volume and severity. There has also been an escalation in the magnitude of highly targeted attacks, possessing clearer objectives which provoke more serious overall impacts. As attacks have become more prolific and aggressive, organisations are demanding a wider range of higher quality security services that can be tailored to individual needs. Customers are acknowledging that without strategic changes and significant action, the increase in security incidents witnessed in 2021 will continue throughout 2022.
