2017 Annual Cybersecuritry Report


The 2017 Annual Security Report is released today. This is the tenth year of the report which delivers analysis on the evolving threats and trends from 2016, insights from a survey of more than 2,900 security professionals worldwide, as well as guidance on how to be more secure in 2017 and beyond.

The report investigates the impact a breach can have on businesses - operational disruption, lost customers, missed opportunity, a hit to brand reputation, and in some cases, declining revenue.

The report also highlights the fact that malicious actors are taking advantage of expanding attack surfaces and evolving tactics to keep their windows of opportunity open so as to maximize their attacks.
