Organizations are adopting innovative cybersecurity and privacy safeguards to manage threats and achieve competitive advantages. To do so, they are thinking more broadly about cybersecurity and privacy as both protectors and enablers for the business, third-party partners and customers.

The results discussed in this report are based on responses of more than 10,000 CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CISOs, CSOs, VPs, and directors of IT and security practices from 127 countries. Thirty-seven percent (37%) of respondents are from North America, 30% from Europe, 16% from Asia Pacific, 14% from South America, and 3% from the Middle East and Africa. The margin of error is less than 1%.

Information security has always been a high-stakes game. Today, however, it has become a pursuit that is almost impossible to win. The rules and the players have changed, and the risks are greater than ever. Those keeping score seem to agree that the bad guys are prevailing.

They are confident in their security practices, they believe their strategies are sound, and they consider themselves to be leaders in the field. But given today’s elevated threat environment, the odds are not in their favour.

If your company is ready to leverage predictive analytics for specific problem or decision, first ask yourselves: What will the cost be to our company if management makes a 'wrong' business decision?

The answers to these and other key question will help you identify and successfully engineer a solution to your company's specific analytic goals. The information garnered during this process will contribute, in large part, to a "how-to" guide that will serve as a strong foundation on which to build your company-specific predictive analytics initiative.
