Welcome to the December 2017 issue of the Computing Security Newsletter.

At a time of growing anxiety about the level of breaches that are occurring – with high profile after high profile organisation revealed to have suffered a serious breach – it’s little wonder that in Frost & Sullivan’s recent survey covering end-user perspectives on navigating digital transformation some 54% of IT professionals cited cybercrime and espionage as their top challenges.

Following hard on their heels were followed by systems integration, with other noteworthy findings including significant IT investment in productivity, improving digital presence, as well as communications/collaboration tool integration with other business software (Microsoft Office, Google-G-suite, CRM, ERP) and vertical applications.

Frost & Sullivan’s research survey, ‘An End-User Perspective on Navigating Digital Transformation, Europe, 2017’, finds that the top benefits seen by organisations deploying Internet of Things technologies include boosting customer service and marketing and automating manual processes.

The survey aimed to understand the IT-related challenges facing organisations; monitor the status of digital transformation, including newer solutions such as AI, AR/VR, and mCommerce; assess current and future uses of business communication technologies; evaluate drivers behind investments in communication technology; appraise IT budgets; and gauge IT and communication trends.

What is clear is that security has to be part of the whole package. Aspiring to excel in any or all of the other areas is to little avail, if the business is brought to its knees by a cyber-criminals, for example. Only a comprehensive strategy that embraces the business in its entirety will keep organisations safe and allow it to thrive.
