As more and more of an organisation’s assets become digital, many companies are unwittingly providing a virtual supermarket of rich pickings for the bad guys. These can include: identities of staff and customers; accounts receivables; proprietary process details; access credentials to the systems of clients and suppliers; and so on.

All these things have a value: identities can be sold, payments can be redirected, processes can be copied or ‘adjusted’; credentials can be used to attack others in a supply chain; computers can be used in a ‘denial of service’ attach on others or to run phishing attacks – the list goes on.
