In this issue, we address the question, “Why are cyberattacks on the rise, and what strategies/practices can organizations adopt to address and minimize the chance of these attacks?” Our five articles were carefully selected to highlight the strategies that enterprises can follow to enhance their security posture. The authors are experts who speak from professional experiences and exten­sive research. They share proven best practices and cyber strategies that can help security professionals better manage cybersecurity risks.

'Absolute' security may not be possible at this stage, but minim­izing loss and damages is imperative when an attack occurs, as is keeping one step ahead of intruders. With data increasingly stored in hand-held devices and often communicated over unsecure networks, only agile organizations are likely to survive unscathed.
