The AT&T Security Resource Center

  • Cyber security is one of the most pressing issues for companies today.

  • But only about a third of business leaders say they feel they know enough about security in the enterprise.

  • The AT&T Security Center can help both business and IT staff learn more about cyber security and how to safeguard their data and their brands.

Viruses. Worms. Phishing. DDoS. APT. Cross-platform malware.

In the past few years, words like these have gone from being strictly IT terms to part of our everyday corporate vocabulary. It seems that everyone is talking about cybersecurity. According to the Wall Street Journal CIO Network special report, three of the top five strategic priorities for CIOs in 2015 are security related.

And the concern over data security is likely to grow, driven by trends like bring your own device (BYOD) and increasing reliance on technology to carry out day-to-day business. Analyst firm Forrester predicts that at least 60 percent of brands will discover a breach of sensitive data in 2015.

But according to a study conducted by research center the Ponemon Institute, most members of corporate boards say they have only limited knowledge about cybersecurity.

That awareness gap is why we’re launching the AT&T Security Resource Center, a comprehensive collection of information, insights, and research that can help you protect your data and your brand.

Security from every angle

AT&T has long been among the leaders in cybersecurity strategies and solutions, and we’ll use our expertise to examine security issues from all angles, with updated content every week. Contributors will include experts from AT&T as well as other cyber security authorities.
