Managing Risks In An Ever-Changing Cyber Landscape

The threat is real - cyber crimes have become a daily concern for businesses around the globe. By 2023, it is estimated that cyber criminals will steal a total of 33 billion records a year, costing companies an average of almost US$4 million per data breach1.

With cyber security becoming of utmost importance to organizations, CISOs have their hands full in threat preventions and security infrastructure developments, especially with the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud. In fact, based on survey findings from Management Events, cloud security is the topmost priority for 54% of CISOs, who are implementing solutions to ensure their organizations are ‘cloud-ready’.

Surprisingly, our survey also found that less than half of CISOs are putting in efforts to raise employee awareness of cyber security. As employees are the first line of defense against cyber attacks, companies cannot afford to be lax on training and educating staffs to be vigilant of ongoing threats.

Discover more investment priorities and emerging technologies that CISOs are capitalizing as part of their preventive measures against cyber attacks in our Trend Report - Managing Risks In An Ever-Changing Cyber Landscape. Read up on our special feature on must-know future trends in cyber security, and prepare your organization for 2020.

Here are the report key takeaways:

  • Towards A Robust Strategy

With cyber threats becoming a daily occurrence, CISOs are shifting from reactive to proactive cyber security strategies, especially in increasing employee cyber security awareness.
  • Cyber Breach Prevention

Organizations are also enhancing their data protection through big data analytics to detect real-time threats and prevent breaches.
  • Enhancing Cloud Security

As businesses continue to migrate their data to the cloud, CISOs are establishing security measures for a smooth and secure data transition.
  • Cyber Security For Business Success

CISOs need to realize that cyber security is not just about protecting the organization's data, but should also contribute to business growth.
