In today’s digital world, the volume of cyberattacks continues unabated. But, even more concerning, the technical sophistication of these attacks is also increasing. Due to these combined factors, cyberattack damage will amount to about $10.5 trillion annually by 2025—a 300 percent increase from 2015. As a result, Microsoft includes security as one of five digital imperatives, urging organizations to prioritize their cybersecurity strategy and proactively protect their networks and data.
The challenge is that the security landscape is incredibly complicated; more numerous and advanced threats, more nebulous and complex compliance requirements, and more challenging and intricate infrastructure to secure. As a result, for even the most adept IT, cybersecurity can be difficult to manage.
