In cybersecurity, new threats and vulnerabilities appear at break-neck speed – faster than any one security team or analyst can manage. As new technologies create opportunities to innovate and streamline, businesses must weigh the benefits against the associated security risks.
If the security incidents of the past 12 months have taught organizations anything, it’s this: it’s not a matter of if, but when an incident will occur. As such, cybersecurity is a top-of-mind business imperative – even at the C-Suite and Board levels.
As organizations adopt next-generation technology, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT), business leaders must work with their security teams to ensure risk management isn’t an afterthought.

Jon Ramsey and Dr. Zulfikar Ramzan, Chief Technology Officers for Secureworks® and RSA®, respectively, explain how the adoption of new technology and investment in digital transformation accelerates risk and share key recommendations to address new vulnerabilities without restricting technological innovation.
