One of the main challenges will be cybersecurity, with the global cost of cybercrime expected to reach $6 trillion by 2021, according to industry reports.
As a new decade kicks off, security leaders are at the forefront of addressing a new wave of threats and developing innovations that go beyond traditional security solutions.
With information security gaining serious traction in the business world, the role of today’s CISO is now more important than ever to protect the credibility, integrity and profitability of the business.
