Introduction: Infrastructure Complexity and Cyber Threat Velocity Impacting Security Management Capabilities
This IDG Connect survey, sponsored by ForeScout, illustrates the nature and extent of the security threats and defense maturity arrayed against organizations in the finance, manufacturing, healthcare, retail and education sectors in Austria, Germany, Switzerland (DACH region), the UK and the USA. It offers a snapshot of security issues impacting organizations, the processes, tools and controls used to pre-empt and contain violations, exposures and cyber threats, assesses the degree of confidence IT departments have in their efficacy, and identifies areas most likely for future enhancement and investment.
Most organizations within the UK, USA, and the DACH region continue to experience a significant number of security breaches and exhibit a diverse range of exposures, indicating that increases in operational complexity, such as devices, accessibility, mobile, virtualization and cloud, are extenuating gaps in existing security operations. Furthermore, the growth in the number of violations, vulnerabilities, and cyber-attack landscape is widely apparent.
The absolute necessity that every organization should undertake is to evaluate the implementation of new monitoring and mitigation mechanisms beyond conventional tools and controls within a defense-in-depth program. It is equally apparent that in many cases effective cyber defenses will require processes conducive to continuous protection which integrates better discovery, prevention and response capacity across the entire IT estate – from end user device and network to the server, application and data
