DAYTON, Ohio, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sogeti, a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Capgemini Group, announces its latest publication, "Staying Ahead in the
Cyber Security Game" co-written with IBM.

Sogeti USA is a premier provider of information technology services to
businesses and public sector organizations. Operating in 23 U.S. locations,
Sogeti's business model is built on providing customers with local
accountability and vast delivery expertise. Sogeti is a leader in helping
clients develop, implement and manage practical IT solutions to help run their
business better.

Beyond the deep analysis of the new shapes of Cyber criminality and the
challenges that organizations are facing, the book offers pragmatic and
innovative approaches for threat anticipation and efficient reaction to
attacks.

"It is essentially time for the security conversation to be based on value
creation, instead of the reduction of risk," said Erik van Ommeren, VINT^1
Director from Sogeti and co-author of the book. "For the past years, fear for
the hackers and for data loss was the driving force of security programs. This
is not sufficient. This book will help CEOs and CIOs to look a new at Cyber
Security and to consider it as a key element of their strategy."

The authors focus on the unequal balance of power between attackers and their
victims^2, the threats on industrial systems, the future of encryption, the
implementation of security governance, and data protection. They focus on the
role data scientists will play moving forward.

"Staying Ahead in the Cyber Security Game: What Matters Now", was co-authored
by members of the SogetiLabs trendspotting team working in collaboration with
the Sogeti Security Practice and IBM. Authors include: Erik van Ommeren, and
Marinus Kuivenhoven from the SogetiLabs trend team and Martin Borrett from the
IBM Institute for Advanced Security Europe.

^2 The resources available to attackers and their victims are not equivalent.
The attacker has more time to prepare and use sophisticated techniques while
its victim has to react quickly and does not always have the necessary
technology to meet them.
