2017 Annual Security Roundup: The Paradox of Cyber threats

Last year, we saw how big-name enterprises were victimized by different forms of cybercrime, with huge amounts of money and information lost in the process. These were the result of a destructive combination of increasingly aggressive threats and incomplete security practices. Unsurprisingly, customers are finding it harder to trust companies that have been affected by security incidents. In the face of cyberthreats, therefore, enterprises stand to lose their clients’ unquantifiable trust and patronage, on top of many billions of dollars and bytes of data.

This roundup reviews the major cybersecurity stories and trends that surfaced in 2017. Ultimately, it aims to further highlight the importance of adopting smart security strategies for enterprises to be protected against risks and attacks from across the entire threat landscape.
