New virtual reality has increased vulnerability to threat actors. To respond to these heightened cybersecurity risks, CGI’s security experts are uniting by volunteering their expertise and time to better protect people, businesses and communities against cyber threats.
We take a look at the things business and security leaders can do to take control of their cyber security standpoint to defend against threat actors who are capitalising on the business changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our clients tell us that it is becoming harder for them to build a strong team of cyber security specialists as the demand and costs for these scarce skills skyrockets. Experts need access to advanced monitoring, correlation and analysis tools and need the latest local and global information sources to predict and prevent attacks. They also need to understand attackers, from espionage teams, to cyber criminals, to hacktivists. 

Cyber Security is part of everything we do. Our teams continuously identify, integrate and deploy the most innovative security solutions to maintain a state-of-the-art protective monitoring services. We often find security threats that have successfully penetrated an organisation’s standard defensive measures. Such threats may be the result of highly sophisticated external attacks succeeding in circumventing the organisation’s security measures or by an “insider threat” where employees or contractors can maliciously, inadvertently or negligently introduce security risks into their business’ IT environment.
