Here at BAE Systems we understand that it’s not just physical threats we need to defend against. Virtual threats can be just as harmful to our people, our assets and our infrastructure. We provide universal protection across both the physical and virtual worlds.
We help nations, governments and businesses around the world defend themselves against cybercrime, reduce their risk in the connected world, comply with regulation and transform their operations.
BAE Systems is a defence company with a long history of driving successful innovation in massively complex integrated systems. We have been helping to defend the largest nations and businesses in the world for over forty years against advanced threats.
The nature of these threats is now changing and the threats have extended into cyber-space. Cyber threats no longer just come from mischievous hackers playing games. They come from organised, smart, stealthy criminal groups and nations, looking to steal intelligence and capital. Attacks pioneered by nation states are now being used to attack businesses of all sizes and standard security technology has dropped in effectiveness from 80% to 20% over the past 10 years.
Additionally criminals are taking advantage of modern communications and computing techniques to plan and conduct their crimes. The techniques and tools that enable business and law enforcement to detect, prevent and investigate crime – both in the physical and cyber worlds – are in the process of rapid adaption.
At the same time, society is evolving the way we consume technology, putting more data out into the public arena than ever before, demanding that Governments, businesses, individuals and communities are all interconnected, and all with the expectation that our privacy is protected.
