Security breaches are on the rise, and it is no surprise to find that as the number of information security incidents continues to mount, so do financial losses.

Survey respondents in 2014 report that the number of detected incidents soared to a total of 42.8 million, a 48% leap over 2013. This increase comes at great cost: Total financial losses attributed to security compromises increased 34% over 2013.

Cyber risks will never be completely eliminated. Today, organisations must remain vigilant and agile in the face of a continually evolving threat landscape. Find out why your organisation should consider implementing a risk-based approach to security that prioritises your most valuable assets and proactively addresses your most relevant threats.
