Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Currently, video provides advertisers with a versatile medium to
reach the audiences they want, where they want, to put the best
spotlight on their story. But the question remains—what is the
best way to reach your target, and how can you ensure they will
pay attention to your message? Download this whitepaper to find out!

You've no doubt heard the question: "How do we know that social marketing drives sales?" But just as not all TV spots or billboards are intended to drive direct response, not every social marketing program is designed as a sales trigger. To measure the success of social marketing - indeed, of any marketing tactic - you need to think of your customers' journey as a board game like Monopoly. Then follow three simple steps: 1) identify which stage of the customer journey your social marketing program is designed to support; 2) measure whether your social marketing efforts have moved your customers to the next state of their journey; and 3) count how many times your customers pass "Go" so you can collect $200. If you keep your customers moving around the board, eventually, you'll win the game.
