The Dissolving Perimeter—Security Experts Speak

An Expert Panel Discusses an ESG report, “2017 Business Cybersecurity Trends”

Webroot recently commissioned ESG Research to conduct a survey of North American enterprise security decision makers on the challenges they face as they take on malware and other cyber threats that pass through the network perimeter.

According to the participants, more than half (54%) believe incident detection has become more difficult. 88% are researching new security tools. 83% increased their 2017 cybersecurity budgets. And as much as 23% lament a shortage of skilled staff within their organizations.*


Register for this live panel webcast in BrightTalk, featuring security experts crossing CISO, threat intelligence, academic and vendor perspectives. They’ll discuss results of the survey, its findings and what immediate steps CISOs can and should take to address current security challenges.
