With cyberattacks on the rise and here to stay, it's a modern-day challenge for financial institutions, businesses and people to get smarter about preventing them.

As the cyberattackers get more sophisticated, it's a catch-22 situation, with no end in sight, says Dr. Guy Bunker, an expert from cyber security firm Clearswift.

"It's no longer just about credit cards and bank details, it's about any information that can be monetised. Product designs and even service contracts, all have a value to someone," said Bunker.

Watch Dr. Bunker explain this in further detail, and learn more about how to stay on top of this evolving and critical problem.
