What's a cyber threat?
In today’s high-tech world, a cyber threat can take many forms. It could be a disgruntled employee letting off steam on Facebook, damaging your business's reputation in the process; an email that appears genuine but disables your systems or a data breach that results in customer information being lost, shared or meddled with, putting their privacy at risk.
