The high-tech sector is home to some of the most valuable data on earth. High-tech companies’ intellectual property (IP) is a prime target for cybercriminals and so-called hacktivists. Companies need to police all of their channels to protect from bad actors.
High-tech companies tend to be early adopters of new technologies that are still maturing. They are also very bold with their operations and execution frameworks. Without complete visibility into their digital footprint, this appetite for experimentation can leave them especially vulnerable to cyberattack.
76% of high-tech executives are correctly concerned about insider threats. As DeLoitte put it: In high-tech companies, “a single highly skilled insider with the right kind of access can quickly make off with huge amounts of valuable data.” High-tech leaders cannot afford for their digital networks to be black boxes. They need to scan everything, and detect any untoward activity.
For high-tech companies, brand integrity is invaluable. The hijacking of digital channels can be a disaster for enterprises. Malicious customer posts that aren’t dealt with can result in brand damage, loss of revenue, and shareholder value. Only AI can keep up with the velocity of potential threat vectors.
