As leaders, the rise of digitization and the cyber risk it presents feels like old news. We’re so inundated with cyber breach stories that we’re almost numb to them. We’re hyper-focused on the bottom line and the digital scale we need to achieve it. Yet it’s become apparent that our digital scale is creating sweeping critical trust concerns at the enterprise level.

Research firm Frost & Sullivan forecasts that a staggering 50 billion connected devices will exist by next year. Often the information being passed from those devices is critical to our business and sometimes life-impacting – as in the case with medical devices.
