Putting security at the heart of business and innovation – White Paper
The essentials for cyber security in the digital age
Are you ready to make trust and compliance a new success pillar for your digital strategy?
With digital transformation, never have the opportunities for innovation been so rich. Yet with those opportunities come new risks – and security systems, in most cases, need to catch up. A staggering 90% of enterprises recognise that their defences are insufficient. Recent calculations of cyber-crime costs are already hitting $345bn per year, and dangers are escalating with the upsurge of the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing and intelligent machines.
Our white paper reveals the essentials for cyber security in the digital age. It covers how:
- To assess the level of risk and apply the appropriate public service-driven security policies
- In a digital world where data is at the heart of value, it must also be at the heart of security
- It is essential to re-orient security budgets from generic protection to rapid detection and reaction responses to stay ahead of the pace of change.
Security is the new asset, driving public sector empowerment
The paper also proposes how, in the digital age, just as data is becoming the new currency, trust may well be the most intangible yet critical business asset. For years, rating systems have shown how businesses in the retail or travel sectors depend on reputation. Tomorrow’s hyper-connected world will take this concept to a new level, for public bodies and corporations alike.
Security is therefore at a turning point. Not only is it necessary to reduce risk and ensure compliance; but by reducing risks, public organisations can be empowered – to be more trusted, more agile, and take public service to new heights for all stakeholders: citizens, corporations and NGOs.
