Over the course of 2018, AKJ Associates undertook a complex, in-depth research project into what Europe's end-user cybersecurity experts consider to be the major challenges – and the most effective solutions – when it comes to cybersecurity.

The project surveyed over 250 individuals based in countries across Europe, who were primarily attendees at AKJ Associates' exclusive invitation-only cybersecurity conferences. They told us about a number of the challenges facing them, and about the solutions they'd found effective in dealing with those challenges.

One of the challenges they reported – echoing a common sentiment among cybersecurity professionals – was the difficulty of differentiating between solution providers. The security solutions market is seriously overcrowded, and the procurement process is a long and often painful one. At the same time, it’s a process you can’t afford to get wrong.

To help users differentiate, and to provide other fascinating insights into the specific challenges faced by today's CISOs, the report draws on the wisdom of AKJ Associates’ extensive network of senior information security professionals.

In addition to the report, we will be posting several 'deep dive' breakdowns of the results on our dedicated 'Who Secures Europe?' homepage. Stay tuned for more!
