Information about High-Profile Breaches Are Shifting Enterprise Security Strategy
The attacks against Microsoft Exchange and SolarWinds highlighted enterprise concerns over supply chain vulnerabilities and attack visibility. Dark Reading’s 2021 Strategic Security Survey shows that high-profile incidents drove changes in enterprise security strategies over the past year. In the survey, 54% of respondents describe top executives as paying more
attention and placing a higher priority
on cybersecurity because of the increased media attention around incidents.
The heightened attention comes with a cost, however, as 46% say there is now more pressure
on the security organization and team members are experiencing significantly
elevated stress levels. With increased visibility, 37% of organizations say they perceive their organizations as being inadequately prepared to protect data against ransomware attacks.
It’s not all bad, as 38% of respondents say that end users have become more aware
of cyber threats and are being more careful
in their behavior. There is greater awareness
of the shortcomings in enterprise tools and
strategies for minimizing cyber-risk. More than a quarter, or 27%, of organizations
are significantly rethinking their cyber
architecture, and 29% are investing more
heavily in security tools and technologies.
