Cybersecurity is a Growing Challenge
In the world today most organizations are working hard to ensure they have the best defenses and solutions in place to respond to an evolving threat landscape. With prominent organizations announcing publicly incidents and breaches on virtually a weekly basis showcasing advanced threats, it is important to be constantly vigilant and have the right partners to assist. This is where Edge can help.
Industry experts estimate that the current cybersecurity workforce gap is nearing 3 million globally.In many markets there are more positions than available talent, which can create a daunting, lengthy challenge for organizations facing a resignation. Additionally, new technologies often require deep skills to design and implement. Edge is qualified and in position to help fill these gaps.
As advanced threats continue to evolve and leverage attack tools based on artificial intelligence, it is also important that companies prep for how they will respond, investigate and if necessary repel an attacker. In fact IBM estimates the probability an organization will have a breach to be 27.7% over the next 24 months. Further IBM’s data shows that the cost of a breach at an organization with a well designed incident response plane in place is on average 13% lower. Organizations that are able to contain a breach within 30 days have costs that are 25% lower on average. With the size, breadth, fines and impact of breaches, reductions of that magnitude can be very material.
Companies that have taken the time to prep their organization for these events respond more effectively and have materially lower costs.
Edge is prepped and ready with experienced industry experts who can help identify key needs and solutions proactively.
