Arguably the biggest cyber-security risk simply ‘people’. From insider threats to acute skills shortage, poor diversity, patchy representation at Board-level and all the while the internal staff are still clicking on the damn phishing link.

Is it all just over-blown hype that can be managed just like any other risk with a bit of education and discipline, or will people always be the biggest intangible and the cause of the biggest headaches?
