“Cyber security is a critical business function that has moved beyond our clients’ technology agenda,” said recently installed EY Australia CEO David Larocca. “This is because we’re seeing a dramatic escalation in the frequency and impact of ransomware attacks that are changing the way Boards are accountable to stakeholders. Our clients are telling us that cybersecurity is one of their greatest concerns.”
