London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 18 January 2016
Hosted in Hammersmith, West London, CyLon was founded by several of the UK's leading security experts and technology investors. CyLon is a prestigious 14-week programme where teams with innovative ideas in the field of cyber security are given access to professional training and guidance from an accomplished network of mentors and advisors. Torsion is one of only eight teams selected from around the world, and only two from the UK.
Torsion Information Security was founded in 2013 in London, UK. The idea was to take security best practices from military and advanced technical environments, simplify them, and apply them to the everyday interactions that staff have with business information.
'Our acceptance into the CyLon programme is a gratifying endorsement of our innovative idea, product execution, and unique approach to this critical problem space. CyLon provides us with a fantastic platform for taking Torsion to the world. We're excited for the future!' - Peter Bradley, Torsion CEO and Principal Architect.
Many insider security breaches arise when staff have access to more information than they need. In fact, in a recent survey, 71% of business users indicated having access to more company information than they probably should (Ponemon Institute Study). And in the last year, 75% of large UK organisations suffered an information security breach which was either maliciously or inadvertently caused by a staff member (2015 Information Security Breaches Survey).
'Hackers' may get all the Hollywood attention. But it is regular trusted staff members, acting either accidentally or maliciously, who are at the centre of some of the most severe damage being done to organisations the world over.
