  • Data security in a cyberthreat landscape

    President Obama couldn't have put the current state of cybersecurity better: "Whether it's phishing or botnets, spyware or malware, and now ransomware, these attacks are getting more and more sophisticated every day," he said at a summit at Stanford University earlier this year.
