Cyber security continues to rise up the board agenda with major incidents becoming increasingly commonplace across a range of industries. This risk is not about to fade away but, will likely intensify in the years ahead as companies continue to digitise more of their operations.

This report includes a series of viewpoints and perspectives from KPMG’s cyber security experts on future challenges facing companies as they plan their cyber security response.

KPMG is collaborating with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and other business advisory firms on the FTSE 350 Cyber Governance Health Check initiative.
