Crossword Cybersecurity Plc has released a report highlighting anxieties surrounding security strategies soon growing outdated.
Over 200 CISOS and senior cybersecurity professionals were surveyed.
Key findings include:
- 40% of respondents expect their current cybersecurity strategy be outdated in the next two years.
- A further 37% expected their current cybersecurity strategy be outdated in the next three years
- 61.4% were “fairly confident” in their ability to prevent cyber attacks
- 44% said they had the means necessary to protect their organisation from immediate and mid-term risk.
“Boards must make sure CISOs have the budget necessary to get short-term issues under control and then begin planning a long-term business-wide strategy. Such a strategy should be supported by a standard operating model with robust processes and policies for the company’s entire supply chain. Every month of delay leaves businesses open to potentially crippling cyber-attacks,” stated Stuart Jubb, Group Managing Director at Crossword Cybersecurity plc, in a press release.
