Information security in a virtual world

Business is moving into the virtual world as more and more data is transmitted over the internet, and cloud computing, social networking and mobile devices become more prevalent.

Our 15th annual Global Information Security Survey confirms that information security is one of the most important issues facing organizations today.

Overall, we have identified three trends with a significant impact on the role and importance of information security:

  • Physical boundaries are disappearing as more business data is transmitted over the internet
  • The pace of change continues to accelerate
  • Companies are moving from the more traditional outsourcing contracts to cloud service providers

Are you prepared for the risks?
