As modern organizations adapt to the changing technological environment, the Chief Information Officer (CIO) has become a more important role than ever before. In addition to holding responsibility for all IT decisions affecting the company, a task that has increased in complexity since the early days of the internet, the CIO is also now faced with leading an organization through digital transformation. A strong company needs a developed IT strategy to remain connected and competitive, and the complexity of these IT projects is higher than ever before. As cybercrime rates rise annually, the role of the CIO has shifted with the need to constantly produce and review a holistic security strategy.
According to a recent study by Accenture, every company experiences 130 cyberattacks a year, which equates to an increase of almost 30 percent year-over-year. Additionally, many of these attacks often begin internally and take an average of 80 days to discover, and another 50 days to resolve and close the security vulnerability. Make sure your organization is safe, secure and protected from cyberattacks.
