Cybersecurity Fails without Strategy

Building and running a cybersecurity organization is a daunting task and most aren’t doing very well. The brutal reality is that the industry is struggling. Even as gains are made in the professional community, losses are skyrocketing in the face of security spending that is increasing to astronomical levels.

And while Jakarta is hopeful that as many suppliers as possible will opt for the rupiah to relieve downward pressure on its embattled currency, such hopes are wishful at best.
