Fijneman: "We are facing a difficult task. Society in general and companies in particular should be given more control over the phenomenon of cybercrime. Companies are left behind when it comes to cybersecurity and that needs to change. Together with Microsoft and Shell, KPMG is starting a research into the possibility of a model-based approach to this highly topical issue. We consider it important that companies share knowledge and collaborate purposefully on improving the management of knowledge of online threats and incidents. This way, cybersecurity can become an integral part of the Risk Management Framework of companies, which it is not the case now."
