Part of a ZDNet Special Feature: Security and Privacy: New Challenges

Executive's guide to the next wave of security challenges (free ebook)

Our increasingly mobile and connected world is forging a complex threat landscape where the traditional tools fall short and the old rules no longer apply.

The days of circling the wagons to protect corporate digital assets are long gone. Fortifying the perimeter and keeping a tight rein on information stored within the company data center are obsolete tactics in today's connected world. Cyber threats are rampant, sophisticated, and becoming more and more costly. And it's only going to get worse.

Analysts and security experts predict an onslaught of growing cybercrime opportunities as new attack vectors are opened up by mobile technologies (including payment systems), social networking, big data, cloud services, and the Internet of Things. At the same time, privacy protection is an escalating concern, triggering controversy around policies and preemptive solutions such as encryption.

The proliferation of cyberattacks and the failure of traditional tools to safeguard businesses and individuals have brought us to a new reality: It's no longer a matter of if you're attacked, but when and how.

ZDNet and TechRepublic put together this free ebook to help you stay on top of current and emerging security concerns and carve out the best strategies for protecting company assets and personal data.
