In today’s business world, IT has become more ubiquitous than ever; much sensitive data is online.
Cyber connections are pervasive in every aspect of commercial activity. We use the internet to execute financial transactions, maintain data, manage financial/HR functions and direct operational activities. This innovation is profoundly changing the economy.
Unfortunately, this has enabled bad actors to take advantage of platform vulnerabilities, creating cyber threats. In today’s digital economy, you cannot have an effective strategy without a tightly interwoven cybersecurity strategy. Security is a competitive differentiator and will continue to be a market distinguisher as technologies and threats evolve.
