It offers a selection of key articles originally posted on the Corix Partners blog since 2015 and expert insight on why large organizations still struggle with decade-old security problems – and how to fix them.

The Security Transformation Research Foundation is a dedicated think-tank and research body aimed at approaching Security problems differently and producing innovative and challenging research ideas in the Security, Business Protection, Risk and Controls space




On 7th November 2019The Security Transformation Research Foundation released a significant new piece of research realized across the summer of 2019 in cooperation with Corix Partners, highlighting significant trends in the way the language of security has evolved across the last 2 decades.

The Foundation analysed the semantics content of 17 annual “Global Information Security Surveys” from leading firm EY, spanning the period 2002-2018.

By looking at the frequency of keyword markers and how those frequencies have evolved over time, the research puts in evidence a clear demarcation between 2 periods.
