Business is changing and the fourth industrial revolution is underway. Data has become the lifeblood of the organization as Boards seek to harness the potential of our digital economy, create new customer experiences, transform their services, and drive efficiencies and cost savings. The future is being created from a fusion of new business models, new technologies, and new partnerships.

In this changing world, there are ruthless entrepreneurs who are making money in this new economy. Unfortunately they are cyber criminals and they are on the wrong side of the law. They pose new challenges to legitimate businesses and businesses need to think differently about how to protect their competitive advantage and develop new models with a goal of becoming and remaining cyber secure.

Cyber security professionals need to demonstrate they can protect the heart of the transformed business with an agility of thought and action that recognizes the pace and speed at which cybercriminals operate.

They need to assemble the kind of collaborative talent—across the enterprise—that is able to take a proactive stance and meet these issues head on. The CISO can't do it all. New partnerships are needed, technology is an opportunity, not a threat, and cyber security is becoming a key business enabler.

We picked six key cyber considerations which will shape the way we approach security in 2020 and beyond, and asked our professionals to share their insights and experiences to help you meet the challenges ahead.

  1. Aligning business goals with security needs
  2. Digital trust and consumer authentication
  3. The evolving security team
  4. The next wave of regulation
