The Cyberthreat Defense Report began the process of looking beyond headline-grabbing breaches and the nth stage in the evolution of cyberthreats to better understand the perceptions, concerns, and priorities of the IT security professionals charged with defending today's networks. Representative findings from that first report included the revelation that one in four security professionals doubts whether their organization has invested adequately in cyberthreat defenses, the identification of mobile devices as IT security's "weakest link," and the expectation that more than three-quarters of businesses will adopt bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies by 2016.
