President Obama has declared that the “cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation” and that “America's economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cyber security.” 1 Cyber risks have been elevated to boardrooms through media exposure and legislation. KPMG is leading the way in advising member firm clients on transforming their cyber security programs to meet these new threats.
The prepare phase of KPMG’s Cyber Security Framework is about understanding and improving your current state of preparedness against cyber attack.
What’s on your mind?
- I don’t know if my organization meets all of its obligations for information assurance?
- Is data secure in my organization?
- What should we do if we don’t fully understand our current vulnerabilities?
- Do our supply chain partners put us at risk?
- What should our information security strategy look like?
