After seven years, the mi2g digital risk management methodology and
bespoke security architecture techniques have been adopted by major players
in financial services - on both sides of the Atlantic - and government agencies.
The Contingency Capability Radar (CCR) is considered
particularly suitable in preparing for chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological
and conventional terrorism threats to business continuity whilst the Digital
Risk Matrix (DRM) is deployed in preparation for sustained digital attacks.
Geoffrey Hancock, founder of the MEC Group of companies and co-founder of
mi2g, said, "It is of interest to note that the ever expanding
cyber threat to business continuity is closely tracking the international
political scenario with particular reference to terrorism. The message which
is clear from mi2g research is that governments and corporates alike will
ignore these issues at their peril."
Rear Admiral John Hilton, Special Projects advisor to mi2g said, "I
have been associated with mi2g since its early days and have been very impressed
to watch it rapidly evolve into its present position as one of the world leaders
in information security and cyber warfare issues. I congratulate mi2g on its
birthday and wish all those involved many happy, exciting and prosperous years
mi2g's security intelligence and research continues to be regarded
as one of the world's authoritative sources of digital attack data.
DK Matai, Executive Chairman mi2g said, "We thank our friends
in government and industry for their contribution to mi2g's success on this
milestone occasion. Our stakeholders have been excellent and through them
we have been exposed to many new ideas and challenges. mi2g will continue
to play a major role in solving complex technology dependent risk issues in
the years to come."
