Cybersecurity insights for protecting your digital business

The Executive’s Guide to the 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report provides insights on the latest security threats and offers recommendations for protecting your organisation from cybersecurity incidents.

The Report will:

  • demonstrate the impact of today’s threats against every kind of organisation around the world
  • help you understand what the most important threats are, and how they work
  • emphasise actions management, technical staff, and users can take to improve cybersecurity



A constantly evolving landscape of APTs and other security threats… increased IT compliance pressure … demand from your business stakeholders to provide robust security for virtualisation, enterprise mobility, and cloud computing ... enterprise security is a complex and fast-moving target.

The stakes are high. A security breach could expose your business to financial and reputational damage. Non-compliance with legal and other standards can result in steep penalties − and even criminal liability.
