Palo Alto Networks - Navigating the Digital Age books

Palo Alto Networks - Navigating the Digital Age books

Like many European policy and business leaders, we believe cybersecurity is a business issue, not simply an IT issue. Modern corporations must have the capacity not just to understand the opportunities but also to understand and mitigate the risks inherent in our digital age. Palo Alto Networks pledges to bring cybersecurity awareness to the European c-suite, in government agencies and in the private sector, by leveraging the (free) European versions of our book series, “Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers.”  These books gather and share experience and best practices from European CEOs, CISOs, lawyers, consultants and current and former government officials. The books address common issues, including how to manage strategic cybersecurity initiatives  at the boardroom level, as well as relevant EU and country-level legislation.  

We have launched three European versions to date: France, United Kingdom, and Benelux. We will distribute free copies of the books, hold roundtables and other events, and would be pleased to join forces with governments throughout Europe to bring these messages to the c-suite.

Qualitative Impact

Like many European policy and business leaders, we believe cybersecurity is a business issue, not simply an IT issue. Modern corporations must have the capacity not just to understand the opportunities but also to understand and mitigate the risks inherent in our digital age. Raising awareness across the European c-suite in this regard will contribute to increased cybersecurity in Europe.
