3.62 million dollars is the average cost of a Data Breach (Ponemon Institute), a risk that unites Private and Small and Large Enterprises.
The world is digital and strongly interconnected. The considerable increase in the use of technologies such as Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data increases the perimeter of vulnerabilities, making the risk management process within companies more and more organized. Today the risks deriving from cyber attacks are in third place after natural disasters and extreme weather events (Global Economic Report of the World Economic Forum).
Data breaches, malware, ramsonware, phishing, DDoS, and social engineering are top concerns for most companies. The introduction of the new European legislation, the GDPR, will involve more and more necessary investments in IT security. To counter threats, however, technological solutions by themselves are not enough. It will be necessary to establish an effective security program with the support of specialized partners that bring together skills, processes, and technology that respond to the different types of threats.
