On Saturday afternoon, I looked out at my back garden and realised that the grass needed to be cut.
I wasn’t feeling particularly energetic at the time, so I decided I’d have a cup of coffee and cut the grass later.
To be honest, I knew ‘later’ really meant ‘not today’.
While having my coffee, I looked at the weather app on my phone.
It told me that rain was due in 17 minutes.
2 minutes later, I was in the garden.
14 minutes later, the grass was cut.
Isn’t it amazing how a deadline can motivate us to get things done?
What has this got to do with cyber security?
If I told you that your organisation was going to be attacked tomorrow, what would you do today to reduce the likelihood of the attack succeeding?*
If you don’t know where to start, I can help.
* Just because I invented that deadline, it doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
