Who are you, and who are they? Just 50 years ago, you personally knew your banker, your employer, your grocer – and they knew you. Today you are asked to trust that the person on the other side of an email, a login, a transaction, or a phone call is who they say they are.
Whether you’re a technician dealing with alert overload, a CEO who is accountable to shareholders following a catastrophic breach, or a consumer who just had your account compromised, security is top of mind. It’s the story of the decade. And with cybersecurity spending predicted to exceed $1 trillion over the next five years, it will be the story of the next decade too.
It’s hard to keep pace with the frequency and scale of breaches, the dearth of cyber security talent and the emergence of new threats that piggyback innovations like IoT and AI. Nation states are now both targets and hackers themselves. At the same time, governments are trying to curb the impacts through sweeping privacy and security legislation.
These stories touch all of us. RH Strategic is placing its clients at the center of the conversation by engaging reporters, analysts, opinion leaders, investors and lawmakers. Our clients are challenging the conventions of security and setting a new vision for a safer and more secure world – and we make sure the world knows it.
