Recently on the blog we published research suggesting almost a quarter of office workers across EMEA believe that the CEO should be held accountable for a significant data breach. At the same time, the research also showed there is a disconnect between the CEO and the IT department when it comes to security, with one in four IT decision makers (ITDMs) admitting to not actually disclosing a significant data breach to senior management. With as much as $445bn being lost to cyber attacks annually, it is becoming more important than ever to ensure your business is investing in the right approaches and infrastructure to combat this growing threat (see our recent infographic for more on this).
To help you tackle these challenges, we have put together Ten Top Takeaways report, which not only explains why organisations are at increasing risk from cyber attacks, but provides tangible solutions as to how these risks can be managed. In the report, we share our advice on rethinking your organisation’s security strategy, from maintaining transparent management structures to help improve accountability and responsibility, to having the right technology in place to enable agile and adaptable company-wide security. Each takeaway gives an overview of the specific challenge, and offers context and guidance for maintaining best practice security infrastructure and processes within your organisation.
Read the full report below, and if you’re keen to learn more we’ll be hosting an interactive CrowdChat on this very topic with VMware spokespeople and customers. We’ll be sharing more details on this soon, so make sure you don’t miss out.
