Customers are tired of brand interactions that don’t take into account their needs, wants, and desires. Providing content that really hits the mark—every time—requires marketers to develop a whole new mindset. One that begins and ends with the customer journey and the technology needed to support it.
As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats.

The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.
