"Worldwide security spending will reach $96 billion in 2018, up 8 percent from 2017." - Gartner
Security experts have predicted that this year's cyberthreats will be far worse than last's, with ransomware, DDoS, phishing, and cryptojacking attacks becoming even more sophisticated. Faced with an increase in cyberattacks and strict compliance regulations—like the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK's Data Protection Bill—enterprises need to act now and implement practice best security measures.
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has developed their own list of Critical Security Controls to help enterprises keep cybersecurity risks at bay. Of course, implementing all 20 controls is the best, but that's not always possible due to limited resources and budget restrictions. To help on this front, we're hosting a free webinar on April 24th to help enterprises pick the right security controls for building an effective cyberdefense strategy.
