Cyber Security

Reduce Risk & Increase Security Maturity

It’s not a case of if, but when. And in some cases you’ve already been breached, you just don’t know it. CDW's comprehensive approach empowers organisations to identify risk, protect against known threats, detect suspicious activities, provide incident response, and enable organisations to recover from a breach or security incident.

Cyber Security Challenges

The traditional approach to cyber security is broken. Spending has increased but so has the number of breaches and the sophistication of new threats. Organisations are finding it challenging to navigate and reduce their risk of compromise.


Protecting the business

Boards play a vital role in providing strategic direction, governance, and oversight to ensure effective business success. Complexity and sophistication of threats evolving at pace and having the right skills available to understand and articulate the risk can be challenging.


Protecting the workforce

With working models shifting, changing the way we consume applications and data, the threat landscape has increased, providing more attack surfaces for your organisation to be compromised.


Lack of cyber security skills

There is a shortage of cyber security professionals with the necessary skills and experience to combat cyber threats. This is a major challenge facing cyber security as to how we respond.


Securing your platforms

Your applications and services are now hosted in a multitude of locations, expanding your threat vector, and introducing complexity, consistency, and visibility challenges.


Fragmented and complex regulations

Threat actors do not stop at countries’ borders, nor do they respect international laws. This makes it difficult to create effective cyber security regulations that can be enforced globally.
