Cybersecurity is on the mind of every business leader, and for good reason: The number of data breaches rose 24% between 2020 and 2021, according to global ThoughtLab research co-sponsored by ServiceNow.

Organizations everywhere need advanced security programs to navigate today’s fluid threat landscape. Here are three ways to help do that:

1. Create a framework

Customers are increasingly concerned about data security. Staying current on the latest privacy, governance, and security practices is crucial to assure stakeholders their data is safe.

Learn practical steps to address privacy and data protection. In this webinar, cybersecurity experts from EY and BigID provide guidance to help organizations comply with new regulations and build trust with their customer base. The experts also share classification methods and recommendations for implementation.

2. Address vulnerabilities

Ransomware is the main cause of breaches at 32% of organizations today, according to the ThoughtLab study. Ransomware attacks are expected to rise over the next two years to become the main cause of breaches for 40% of organizations.

This puts customers at risk. Firms can no longer hope for security and plan a response once they’ve been attacked. They need to prepare for the worst before it happens.

Watch our Combating ransomware webinar to ensure threats don’t go undetected. ServiceNow ransomware experts join Krislyn McDonnell, senior product manager at Recorded Future, to discuss best steps to prepare for a worst-case scenario using ServiceNow® Integrated Risk Management, Security Operations, and Recorded Future.

3. Build a proactive security program

As one of the world’s leading software, consulting, and technology companies, NCR Corp. provides services to banks, retailers, restaurants, small businesses, and more.

To protect itself from risks and vulnerabilities, NCR built a proactive security program that relies on automation and integrates threat intelligence across the company’s IT environment. At the heart of the program is ServiceNow Security Operations.

Find out how NCR drove a faster, more efficient security response program and how your organization can boost security response time and efficiency.
