Data security is as important as ever. Cyber fraud and attacks seem to fill the headlines on a daily basis. In this political season, how does your vote impact the future of cyber security? Or does it? Forbes brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Cyber Security Trends To Watch: 2016.”

Many believe thatĀ geopolitics will be the core determinant of the shape and severity of the cyber threat many public and private sector organizations face in the near and far future. As countries grapple with the uncertainties of contemporary international relations, it is becoming increasingly clear that cyber deterrence could become part of diplomacy.

An organization will be in a better position to respond quickly and successfully because of good cyber threat intelligence. Protection, detection and response are the keys to cyber security, but they must be informed by intelligence about the threat.
