New York, NY – May 17, 2017. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading corporate security consulting firm, is proud to announce a short but timely post to its blog on the topic of ransomware and cybersecurity in the wake of the so-called ‘Wannacry’ ransomware. This latest cybersecurity attack is leading to an increasing awareness among corporations of the need for a holistic view to corporate security.
“Gone are the days when one could think of a cybersecurity policy, an employee travel security policy, a supply chain security policy, etc., as individual elements at a corporation,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Instead, we must begin to assess corporate security in a holistic way, with cybersecurity intersecting with other elements such as human vulnerabilities and human error,” he continued.
Interested parties can read the blog post at https://www.theimg.com/blog/2017/05/ransomware/. Those who are seeking a holistic assessment of their corporate security and risks, including but not limited to employee travel security as well as executive travel security, are urged to visit the website and reach out for a consultation.

Transitioning to a Holistic View of Corporate Security
The dividing lines between human and machine, between the United States and foreign countries, and indeed – between fact and fiction – are becoming ever more blurred. A Hollywood movie, for example, can provoke a cybersecurity attack against a global corporation that can then spill over into trade secrets and other exposures. Similarly, a ransomware attack such as those we are witnessing via the ‘Wannacry’ software attack can reflect not just computer vulnerabilities but the vulnerabilities of the human element to being deceived by so-called ‘Trojan Horses.’ Similarly, when executives and employees travel overseas, their need to be secure is increasing important yet can be complicated by things such as the porous border between the USA and Mexico, and the very human tendency to daydream during a seemingly routine car trip to Juarez, Mexico. The experts at the Incident Management Group work with companies to assess their corporate security vulnerabilities, to create security plans, and to train management and employees of just how essential it is to be vigilant in today’s world.
