The Unspoken Truth - GBM Annual Security Report 2019

Data is growing in both value and volume. That is inspiring businesses to digitally transform, in order to tap the value of data and compete in the changing marketplace. However, digital transformation also exposes data to greater security risks, and cybercriminals are also keen to exploit its value through theft, fraud, ransomware and many other kinds of cyber-attacks. This gets organizations trapped in a “digital deadlock”, which keeps them from successfully transforming. So, how can organizations embrace the opportunities of digital transformation, while keeping themselves, their data and their customers protected?

The answer is, naturally, through effective cybersecurity. Yet designing and implementing a security strategy and architecture to meet the needs of the data-driven organization might be more difficult than many realize. Are organizations in the Gulf region prepared to meet the security challenges of digital transformation?

For the eighth year in a row, we asked them directly. With a focus on digital transformation, the GBM 8th Annual Security Survey gathered insights from more than 750 cybersecurity and IT professionals based in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kuwait, and Bahrain. This white paper presents the results, provides a comprehensive review of the cybersecurity landscape, and makes key recommendations for organizations that want to break the digital transformation deadlock and successfully transform their business.

Digital transformation brings many security challenges. Whether you are planning your journey or have already started it, this white paper can help you take the next step.
