A shortage of cyber-talent. Growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) by hackers. Fraud and “phishing”—old fashioned, but still highly effective. Heightened expectations—and reputational and legal risks—related to data protection and privacy. These and other cyber challenges are driving a sharper focus—across the business and in the boardroom—on the risks and opportunities posed by the evolving cyber security landscape. Join us as we discuss KPMG’s “Cyber security considerations for 2019” with Fred Rica and Charlie Jacco, KPMG Cyber Security Services Principals.
