Most organisations around the world have ineffective cyber security, and that means they struggle to thrive in today’s digital world.  

Seeking a better understanding of cloud and cyber-security adoption among businesses, IDC developed the Cyber Security Proficiency Framework.

This innovative new tool looks at the alignment of security objectives, business goals and cyber-defence solutions to help organisations understand whether their cyber security is up to the task. For many businesses, it’s a vital re-think of their security within today’s ever-evolving threat landscape.

The framework was developed following a survey of more than 400 multinational corporations, in over 14 countries. It found that most organisations are at risk due to insufficient security. And that means they’re unable to complete their digital transformation journey and thrive in today’s digital world.

IDC’s white paper, based on the study, recommends a risk-based approach to cyber security requirements, in line with business objectives. So to not only survive, but thrive in a digital world, take a look at how IDC’s framework can boost your business.
