November 02, 2016

Consistently ranking top of the European Commission’s Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI)1, Nordic countries are leading the way in their use of digital platforms. Companies are responding. According to recent research by Accenture2, 56% of large Nordic businesses now have a digital strategy in place, compared with 48% in 2015. As a result, Nordic organisations are constantly growing their digital footprint; be it on the web, through the development of mobile applications or through social media. This has significantly increased their digital attack surface and therefore their exposure to cyber threats. In addition to defending their own digital assets, they also have to deal with the growing problem of cyber impersonation, whether it be domain infringement, web and mobile phishing or executive and brand impersonation on social media. RiskIQ Digital Footprint and External Threats solutions help organisations tackle both problems.
“Cyber Security is a board level conversation today in many Nordic organisations as digital channels overtake traditional channels in all aspects of customer engagement,” said Trevor Crompton, RiskIQ’s EMEA Channel Director. “Bringing visibility and management to the digital assets that make up these channels is core to RiskIQ's solution and we are delighted to be partnering with Evry to extend this capability to organisations across the Nordic region.”
