A new report from the Ponemon Institute, “Exposing the Cybersecurity Cracks: A Global Perspective,” concludes that global security professionals find themselves “deficient, disconnected, and in the dark” in combating cyber threats.

Despite the fatalistic tone in this report, I don’t believe that as security pros, you are the type who would just shrug your shoulders, say “cie la vie”, continue with business-as-usual, and hope for the best. As security professionals, you are excellent at problem solving and thrive at these challenges! You are probably in the midst of figuring out strategies or executing plans to address these deficiencies and remove these feelings of “security inadequacies”.  Many of you are multi-taskers, shoring up your organization’s security and risk management capabilities; at the same time, executing transformative activities such as migrating applications to a software-defined environment. 

At Symantec, we continue to develop solutions to help you secure your agile data center and proactively engage cyber security threats.  Vision 2014, which is coming up in less than three days, offers up focused, relevant content and activities so that you are more confident about your organizations capabilities to navigate the security landscape and facilitate operational alignment across security, IT operations, compliance, and business functions.  If you are interested in solutions for the data center, we encourage to visit the Experience Zone and attend the sessions under the following themes:

  • Transform: Enabling the Agile Data Center
