The Definitive Guide for Leaders in Today's Digital World

Navigating the Digital Age, Second Edition

Global commerce and security, from our financial markets and military systems to our critical infrastructure, increasingly depend on digitally connected technologies – but this barely scratches the surface of the changes still to come.

Although these emerging technologies allow us to achieve formerly inconceivable milestones, they’re also under nearly constant attack. However, using the latest cybersecurity technology – and through collaboration, shared research and threat intelligence – we can stay ahead of these evolving threats.

Still, the pace of digital change is nothing short of blistering. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with it all.

That’s why this book exists.
