Each winter, Forrester outlines 12 important recommendations for your security strategy for the coming year. We base these recommendations on thousands of client inquiries and interactions, consulting engagements, and dozens of primary research interviews with CISOs, security vendors, and major security consultancies and service providers. Our 2015 recommendations fall into four major themes: 1) Earning and retaining customer trust remains of paramount importance; 2) the Internet of Things (IoT) will capture consumer imagination but create complex security and privacy issues; 3) big data will transform security operations; and 4) political instability and cyberterrorism will increase the pressure on CISOs and their teams.
