“Compared with the average employee, executives offer very attractive targets for cyber criminals. Executives typically have greater access to privileged information, often enjoy more lax security constraints than other employees, travel frequently – relying on mobile devices and public Wi-Fi – and are often surrounded by an “entourage” of privileged individuals who themselves provide access to the executive.” David Yaches – SVP, Corporate & Business Development | Aon’s Cyber Solutions at Aon plc
