In this in-depth report written by editors of WSJ Pro Cybersecurity, benefit from the full findings of the Cybersecurity Imperative, a first-of-its-kind global thought leadership study produced with thinktank ESI Thoughtlab in partnership with leading cybersecurity companies, including HP.

HP collaborated to the research framework and surveyed cyber-risk management practices of more than 1,300 organizations globally, along with interviews of key experts and benchmarks across industries.

Vali Ali, VP, HP Fellow, and Chief Technologist - Security and Privacy for Personal Systems. “A new piece of malware is released every day within 4.2 seconds. Recently, malware dubbed “LoJax” is the first-ever-in-the-wild UEFI rootkit detected that establishes a presence on a victim’s computers. One of the problems that CISOs face is how to combat the sheer volume of malware bombarding us.”

Cyber-risk is one of today’s leading risks. A single cybersecurity incident can significantly disrupt operations, result in loss of revenues, create regulatory and legal challenges and negatively affect an organization’s reputation.

Yet the risks continue to challenge. From emerging technologies to the challenges of third parties and suppliers, managing cyber-risk has become a board- and enterprise-level concern that extends beyond the bounds of the Information Technology team.

No one part of an enterprise can tackle it alone. CISOs and leadership teams must collaborate to have a clear view of how their companies are addressing cyber-risk – and how data loss could harm the business.

Download the report today (WSJ Cybersecurity Imperative) for critical guidance for managing your cyber-risk – from third parties and beyond.

The Dow Jones will be publishing it’s first Cybersecurity Imperative Index in the coming weeks.
