Mitigating risks and threats along with extensive intelligence analysis are at the core of comprehensive and effective customized executive protection programs.
IBM Security recently released the annual Cost of a Data Breach Report, revealing costlier and higher-impact data breaches than ever before, with the global average cost of a data breach reaching an all-time high of $4.35 million for studied organizations.
Often mentioned but seldom probed in the media is the biggest reason behind cybersecurity breaches—employee error. Two facts about this stand out. One is just how overwhelming employee errors are. The other is that the fault lies largely in the lap of companies themselves, not their workers.
The business of cybercrime is rapidly increasing in scope and scale. The cost incurred by companies due to data breaches increased by nearly 10 percent from 2020 to 2021, meaning if the cost incurred by attacks was measured against the GDPs of all the nations of the world, it would be third largest, just lagging behind the U.S. and China.

What end users want is a system that is always current rather than a product that can quickly become out of date or is not functional when it matters most.
Critical infrastructure facilities can be quite large, so protecting them is a complex challenge that demands multifaceted solutions.
