This is an interesting, timely, and valuable piece examining how companies are dealing with the growing onslaught of commercial cyber-attacks.

Gone are the days when a company can take for granted that a firewall and updated anti-virus software was enough to keep its data safe.

In any event, this is a good read to stimulate thought about how companies are coping with increasing cyber-security threats. Is your strategy up to the task? It’s a question you cannot afford not to ask yourself!
