From Executive Editor Chris Cubbage:

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Cyber Risk Leaders. As the name submits, this edition takes a broad gambit view across the domains of cyber, security, risk, governance and leadership. It remains the culmination of curated content from our security and technology channels.

As we all respond and adjust to the impacts of a novel coronavirus, COVID-19, the inherent nature of a globalised world, with interdependent supply chains, is being tested. “This is not a drill!”, warned WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. As entire regions of China began to be shut down, so to were the levers on world supply chains, reliant on Chinese manufacturing. And with just as much speed and capability, cyber adversaries instantaneously spread Coronavirus themed phishing campaigns, including against Shipping companies.

A pandemic in the modern world still involves the weakness and frailty of the human race. The panic within populations to stockpile set in early in Singapore, Korea and Japan. In Australia, which showed great community spirit in the face of recent, catastrophic bushfires, is having it unravel with cases of ‘toilet paper’ confrontations and violence in stores – before even the full impact of the virus has arrived.

There remains broad speculation about
the extent and duration of COVID-19. The most likely is it will stretch even the best healthcare systems and likely extend to the interruption of public services and key supply chains. As already seen with event cancellations, public institution closures and city-wide lockdowns for quarantine and containment.

In contrast there will be a demand on IT services, on-demand online content and a rise in the short to medium term pace of digital transformation. The drive towards automation is likely as corporations seek to take the human element out of play and to get back to full production. As well as reduce the risk of similar interruptions into the future.
