Businesses in this hyper-competitive, high-tech world rely on the operations of computer systems to run successfully. Unfortunately, as sophisticated as data systems and operating software have become, so too have hackers and corporate spies evolved to stay one step ahead in their own illegal activities.
Cybersecurity has become such a pressing issue in this environment that the SEC itself has made it a number two priority in its latest Corporation Disclosure Guidelines, insisting that corporations disclose all cybersecurity risks or incidents, and that investors educate themselves on any company’s security record and policies before investing their money.
Many large companies spend a significant percentage of their budgets on security every year, and yet they still remain highly vulnerable to cyberattack. Studies by the most respected expert commissions on cybersafety have found that the vast majority of companies, when tested against their basic standards, failed, regardless of the size of the corporation and their budget.
This infographic, which is Veracode’s new State of Software Security Report, discusses detailed security analysis and offers practical solutions for businesses of every size and profit-level, which can save substantial time and money while providing protection against current cybersecurity threats.
