The Pillars of a Great Cybersecurity Setup

The Pillars of a Great Cybersecurity Setup


Cybersecurity has been near or top of the agenda for organizations for several years and, thanks to COVID, is now firmly a key component of any digital transformation strategy.

Cybercrime has risen significantly since 2020, and a recent survey of CIOs found that four in ten said their company had experienced cybersecurity incidents in the wake of the pandemic.

This has led to many businesses to seek a more comprehensive stack for their security tech and look for new ways to protect themselves.

When businesses were asked how COVID would impact their tech spending plans, 84% indicated they would be increasing spend on cybersecurity—more than any other area of tech.

So what does this mean? It means that attacks are on the rise and businesses are, by and large, responding. So what should they spend their investment on and what solutions should they be considering to go into their cybersecurity setup?
