Six trends driving change and creating new security needs
Targeted and sophisticated cyber attacks
Specialist security skills are in short supply, and businesses are struggling to meet demands of an increased threat landscape, which can leave them more exposed than ever.
Shift to cloud ‘as a service’ delivery
Enterprise adoption of cloud-based services is accelerating, however even the most secure cloud service could be putting business data at risk, if the connection to the cloud is not highly secure.
Increasing adoption of IoT
More and more businesses see IoT as a key enabler to their future success. However this adoption is bringing new security challenges, as organisations look to select the right technologies.
Changing business models and increased mobility
Business are changing the way they work, becoming more borderless. Employees are increasingly mobile and on the move. This poses data risks through the technologies they use.
Customer trust and brand reputation
Customer data breaches suffered by businesses can severely disrupt the relationship with their customers - risking dissatisfaction, concern and customer churn.
Growing regulatory burden
The regulatory landscape is becoming hugely complex, and there is an increasing onus on businesses to provide complete transparency. Non-compliance to regulation can have strong financial and operational impacts.
