Every December at Saepio we unbox our crystal ball and predict what next year has in store for the cyber security industry. We thought you would appreciate our findings and welcome any feedback.
2019 Threat Landscape
The cyber-attack surface widened in 2018. As organisations automate and innovate, the accelerated adoption of new technology and internet connected systems is apparent. Couple this with the rise in cyber criminals armed with tools and knowledge to compromise software vulnerabilities…. well, the result is obvious.
The EU GDPR and the NIS Directive
Trusted Access is a Cyber Security Essential.
You need to ensure that only the right people and the right devices have access to your valued systems and data, this becomes even more important if your estate includes public and private cloud applications.
A user name and password are no longer sufficient to ensure integrity of access, Multi-Factor authentication is the first step on the journey, and if you can also ensure that your devices are trusted and behaving then you’re on the right path and Single Sign On solutions move the game on further still.
In April 2018 The UK Government in conjunction with Ipsos MORI, has surveyed businesses and charities to find out they approach cyber security and help them learn more about the cyber security issues faced by industry.
The overwhelming majority of businesses and charities are reliant on online services, which exposes them to cyber security risks.
Virtually all UK businesses (98%) represented in the survey rely on some form of digital communication or services, such as staff email addresses, websites, online banking and the ability for
It’s fascinating how many endpoint devices being protected by established AV providers fall victim to cyber-attacks.

In fact the average dwell time of a cyber breach is over 120 days! Can you be sure there are no existing infections across your estate?
Saepio advise reviewing the health of your endpoints and gaining peace of mind with an Incident Response scan.
We’re often asked ‘why would a cybercriminal target our business?’. The reality is every organisation has something a threat actor can benefit from, so the more relevant question is, ‘how easy would it be for a cybercriminal to target our business?’.
Like many situations in life, cybercriminals tend to take the path of least resistance and pick the low hanging fruit. Any business that displays public facing technical vulnerabilities will be their first port of call. By using readily available scanning and reconnaissance tools to scope the security health of websites,
