Many organisations are still not prepared to deal with cyber-attacks

Global study reveals more than half have suffered at least one data breach in the past two years

 

According to new research, 68% of IT and security professionals don't believe their organisations can remain resilient in the event of a cyber-attack.

The study, from Resilient, an IBM Company, and the Ponemon Institute, also revealed that 66% are not confident in their company's ability to effectively recover from an attack.

The global study collected responses from more than 2,400 security and IT professionals from the UK, US, France, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Brazil and Australia.

It revealed that only 32% of IT and security professionals say their organisation has a high level of cyber-resilience, while 53% suffered at least one data breach in the past two years. During this time 74% said they have been compromised by malware on a frequent basis and 64% have been compromised by phishing on a frequent basis.
