In the first half of the year, there had been more than 149 confirmed cases of Ransomware attacking businesses around the world.

Balanced metrics: The key to success in DevSecOps transformation

When measuring the success of large-scale transformations—particularly in the technology space—it’s natural to look at hard metrics, such as cycle time, mean time to recovery (MTTR), and so on. In IT, for example, hard metrics are what we do all day long. But within any organization, change is ultimately personal.

Small IT Teams with Big Security Problems

Not every organization is - or even wants to be - a Fortune 500. Unfortunately, cybercriminals don’t care how big your company is. In fact, they often look to target small and midsize businesses (SMBs) knowing that they might have fewer security resources. You have the same problems that the big companies have, but you also have less money and people.
