Cybersecurity: Learning from the Future

The CISO’s 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

Research shows that 90% of New Year’s Resolutions fail.  That’s not catastrophic if your goal is to lose 15 lbs., learn Mandarin, or spend less on lattes.  But if you fail to live up to your Cybersecurity Resolutions, you could end up with the reputational whiplash and consequence cascade of Yahoo!, the DNC and all the others who fell prey to malicious hacks in 2016.

How Security Collaboration Will Prove Vital in 2017

The dangers in cyberspace in 2017 will only increase – most likely with even more sophisticated attacks such as advanced IoT DDoS invasions and ransomware campaigns, not to mention sensitive data hacks with a variety of end goals – from stealing our most critical corporate and personal data to stealing elections. Standard security solutions don’t seem to be working. What, if anything, can be done?
