A recent Gartner study reminds us that with more companies harnessing data for a competitive edge, there are increased challenges to secure information and protect against data breaches or targeted attacks. So how are security vendors responding? In Symantec's case, by going far beyond anti-virus. As one of the largest civilian threat intelligence platform in the world, Symantec has deployed a range of tools to help organisations improve IT security. Here's what you need to know.
2013 was the year of the mega data breach, with over 550 million records exposed. The number of targeted attacks increased by 91% in the last year, 38% of mobile users experienced mobile cybercrime in the past 12 months, while ransomware attacks grew 500% in 2013.
None of us can eliminate the risks but there are steps that can be taken to improve your Cyber Resilience through technology, process and people. Threat trends such as these are covered in depth in the 2014 Symantec Internet Security Threat Report.
