Itís a bold claim; one that hasnít always been accepted as truth. In the not so distant past, digital security was seen as a cost center. Those days are gone.

Security is essential to the success of any digital business. If there is one thing you can always count on, however, itís that security-related incursions are inevitable. And itís news to no one to say that these disruptions can have dire consequences beyond downtime. Security breaches erode trust and damage reputation.

Simply put, thereís no longer a choice. As a CIO, CISO, or other security or IT leader, you know itís your job to be the central agent stressing the connections between business and digital risk. Itís your responsibility to find the talent and technology to ensure the protection of your digital assets.

According to Gartner, by 2020, 100% of large enterprises will be asked to report on their cybersecurity and technology risks to their boards of directors at least annually. Thatís up from 40% in 2018. Whether youíre a leader of a large enterprise or a smaller business, part of your ongoing security, risk management, and compliance strategy will be sourcing the most effective security solution for your business. 

We know. Easier said than done. To help, weíve compiled this guide for you to find the right solution for your business to scale resilience, build trust, and drive revenue.
