Security maturity models can take a variety of forms; they can be embedded on-premises or delivered as a managed third-party service. As such modeling has advanced over the past decade, the need for improved detection and mitigation of attacks has extended well beyond large businesses. A burgeoning underground populated by sophisticated data thieves, state-sponsored hacking collectives, and ideologically motivated hacktivists, is engaged in the systematic plundering and disruption of IT operations at companies of all sizes. This webcast will outline the drivers behind this imperative, summarize the robust approaches security vendors are adopting, and lay out a roadmap for shoring up the security postures of organizations, whatever their size.
