Conventional thinking divides the digital and physical worlds into two distinct and separate realms. But is that still true?

In preparing this report, the persistent and compelling theme that kept surfacing as we identified our security predictions for 2017 was that of convergence. It’s in this context of convergence that we present Forcepoint’s Security Predictions for 2017.
