As the sophistication and frequency of cyber threats continues to increase, the information technology (IT) security industry faces the daunting challenge of defending against heterogeneous, complicated attack methods. Protection against data theft and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks remain a top priority within the industry. Businesses of all sizes face unprecedented security risks with the emergence of innovative IT strategies such as the bring your own device (BYOD) trend, social media, and cloud computing. Weak mobile-device management and ineffective security solutions pose a high threat to personal and intellectual property (IP) data through the proliferation of mobile malware.

The severity of cyber threats against government systems became clear in light of the increased targeting of key energy and utility systems by supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) attacks. The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported that, in 2011 alone, three U.S. cities experienced SCADA breaches.
