Why Read This Report

Today's cybercriminals are highly skilled, resourceful, and determined. Vulnerabilities such as web server misconfigurations or components that include known vulnerabilities give cybercriminals exploitation opportunities. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders are uniquely positioned to help security and risk (S&R) teams assess, find, and remediate vulnerabilities. This report tells I&O pros how they can increase cybersecurity by taking five steps to create and sustain a responsive security environment for applications. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
