This IDC Perspective discusses recent changes in the rapidly evolving cybersecurity threat landscape and the impact that they have on organizations of all sizes. It includes eight pieces of critical knowledge for technology and business leaders to consider as they plan their cybersecurity investments. This knowledge is critical when designing a defense-in-depth approach to security that will remain resilient against evolving threats.
"It's no secret that cybersecurity adversaries have become increasingly sophisticated over the past few years," says Mike Chapple, adjunct research analyst, IDC. "Organizations seeking to protect their information assets in this day and age must remain cognizant of evolving threats and design security controls that remain effective not only against the threats of today but also provide protection against the unknown threats of tomorrow."
