Over the past decade, Cisco has published a wealth of security and threat intelligence information for security professionals interested in the state of global cybersecurity. These comprehensive reports have provided detailed accounts of threat landscapes and their effects on organizations, as well as best practices to defend against the adverse impacts of data breaches.
In our new approach to thought leadership, Cisco Security is publishing a series of research-based, data-driven studies. We've expanded the number of titles to include different reports for security professionals with different interests. Calling on the depth and breadth of expertise from threat researchers and innovators in the security industry, the 2019 series includes the Data Privacy Benchmark Study, Threat Report, CISO Benchmark Study and cybersecurity report for small and midsize businesses. Keep watching this space for the other cybersecurity reports that will be released throughout the year.
