The Best Digital Offense Starts With the Best Security Defense (Cisco)


We have been talking about digitization for a while now, and the fact that it’s disrupting every industry. But, the conversation has shifted. Companies no longer debate whether or not they should digitize – they know they must in order to compete. They know that technology is core to their strategy no matter the industry.

For companies evolving their digital business strategies, I believe there are six imperatives that must be addressed to keep pace with the new highly connected, massively distributed, digital business landscape.

For most companies, one of the first things standing in the way of their digitization journey is the question of security. Companies who implement security well know that differentiating their business through secure technology becomes a business advantage and the foundation for continued innovation. That’s why the first digital imperative is that the best digital offense starts with the best security defense.
