Cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated, more damaging, and especially more costly. The average cost of a data breach has surged to $4.24 million USD per incident, which is the highest average ever recorded. And the new Devolutions State of IT Security in 2022-23 Survey found that 60% of SMBs experienced at least one cyberattack in the last year, and 18% of these experienced six or more cyberattacks.

This requires addressing and resolving the most pressing risks. But what are these?
To answer this question, Devolutions has teamed up with Petri to produce a new white paper entitled “Top Challenges for IT Security Professionals in 2022.”
The white paper takes a deeper look at four core issues and threats that organizations should prioritize:
The white paper also looks at emerging challenges that organizations should prepare for now vs. later, including Linux and Mac security, as well as IoT vulnerabilities.
