Cyber Security Research: The Innovation Accelerator

Cyber Security: The Innovation Accelerator

When digital is everywhere, cyber security is everywhere.

As the world grows steadily more interconnected through the power of technology, the opportunities and risks posed by the digital economy grow in tandem. The UN and Europol estimate that in 2016, the global cybercrime industry overtook the global illicit drug trade to be worth $445bn. Organised crime has changed its behaviour to take advantage of the shift to a data-driven economy, but how are enterprises of all sizes responding to the cyber challenges of this new reality?

Cyber Security: The Innovation Accelerator, the new global research report from Vodafone, sets out to answer this question.

Our goal was to better understand the link between strong cyber security and business decision-making, growth and innovation. Carried out across eight countries and based on interviews with 1,434 security decision-makers from businesses of all sizes, the report highlights not only the risks facing us, but also how winning organisations are harnessing cyber security to drive growth and provide competitive differentiation.

To find out:

  • The link between having strong cyber security and business success
  • The benefits and business drivers of having strong cyber security
  • The role cyber security has to play in business innovation, growth and transformation
  • How adopters of cloud computing and IoT see cyber security differently
  • Challenges, threats and risks to enterprises and how they are reacting
  • Learnings from the next generation of cyber security decision-makers

Cyber security is a key concern for organisations of all sizes. Protecting devices, networks, data and apps is an essential component of doing business. Vodafone provides security products and services to businesses of all sizes, helping you secure your business anywhere because we are everywhere. We are trusted by organisations globally, including utilities, financial institutions and government agencies. For more cyber security insights, you can find us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
