As the dust settles on an extraordinary 2020, it’s time to turn our attention to the year ahead. We’re all hoping for better news in the coming months and a return to some kind of normalcy. But the truth is that many of the business trends that emerged during the crisis will remain with us, possibly for good. That’s no bad thing, especially if you have Trend Micro to support your digital transformation journey.
With some new roles for some old faces, we’re gearing up for another stand-out year to drive success and growth for our customers and partners.

With a history dating back over three decades, Coillte is today the custodian of over 440,00 hectares of Ireland’s forest lands. However, with turnover exceeding €320 million in 2019, its three thriving businesses are also an attractive target for cyber-attackers.

We’ve heard a lot about the acceleration of digital transformation over the course of the past year. McKinsey has claimed that organisations which used to consider digital strategy in “one- to three-year phases” have shifted to doing the same in just days or weeks. At Trend Micro we wanted to find out more, specifically whether these efforts were being managed in a secure manner.
What we found in our interviews with 2,500+ IT decision makers worldwide was revealing. While digital transformation has certainly increased during the pandemic, their understanding of how to mitigate risk in the cloud has not. This threatens to leave many organisations exposed to serious reputational and financial damage.

In the previous part of this three-part series, we explained how organisations are increasingly exposed to financial and reputational risk through unpatched vulnerabilities. The bad news is that these flaws are being found and exploited on an ever-growing scale, thanks to the work of legitimate researchers on the one hand and cybercrime groups and nation state actors on the other. Fail to manage this risk effectively and your organisation may suffer a major data breach and/or ransomware-related outage.
