In today’s fast-changing world, the role of IT is more critical than it was ever before. Organisations work hard these days to digitally transform themselves, modernise their business processes and grow into customer-focused organisations. However, we can all see the advancing dangers coming from cyber security. This is where cloud solutions can prove their added value, but it also makes clear that big global IT companies have a huge responsibility towards their current and future customers.
US President Joe Biden has asked technology companies and financial institutions to do more on cybersecurity. “It’s a matter of national security,” a senior government official said. Biden recently spoke with the top executives of Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, and Microsoft, among others. Biden said in his opening remarks to the group: “I’ve invited you all here today because you have the power and the capacity and the responsibility, I believe, to raise the bar on cybersecurity.”
Microsoft recently reportedly plans to increase its cybersecurity investments heavily. The company published plans to spend $20 billion (about Euro 17 billion) over five years. That is four times the size of the investment the company had previously planned. “Microsoft will invest $20 billion to advance our security solutions over the next five years plus $150 million to help US government agencies upgrade protections and to expand our cybersecurity training partnerships”, said Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella.
Security technology is a growing business for the Redmond company, generating more than $10 billion in annual revenue.
