Digital transformation and innovation are forcing changes to organizations' cyber-security strategies, according to new research. Respondents to the survey also indicated that financial and customer information, brand reputation, intellectual property and employee information are critical assets they must protect against breaches. The report, "Enterprises Rethink Security in the Age of Digital Transformation," was conducted by BMC and Forbes Insights. "Every company, government and society is seeking new innovative paths to drive our digital future," said Bill Berutti, president of security and compliance at BMC, "Businesses need to tear down security and operations walls—or keep getting hacked." Data in the survey reflects the views of 308 executives from a range of industries in North America and Europe. Titles include CIO, CTO, CISO and VP/SVP of technology for information security. All organizations in the research study have at least $100 million in annual revenue. Following are some of the key highlights of the report.
