Shopos has conducted a survey titled ‘The Impossible Puzzle of Cybersecurity’ which revealed how IT managers are inundated with cyberattacks coming from all directions and are struggling to keep up due to a lack of security expertise, budget and up to date technology.
The survey further found that 81% Indian IT managers said their organization’s cybersecurity budget (including people/technology) is below what it needs to be. 8% Indian IT managers believe they have a skilled team in place to properly detect, investigate and respond to cybersecurity incidents which is very low in comparison. While the most challenging task for 89% IT managers said staying up to date with cybersecurity technology is a challenge.
“Staying on top of where threats are coming from takes dedicated expertise, but IT managers often have a hard time finding the right talent or don’t have a proper security system in place that allows them to respond quickly and efficiently to attacks,” said Chester Wisniewski, principal research scientist, Sophos.
“If organizations can adopt a security system with products that work together to share intelligence and automatically react to threats, then IT security teams can avoid the trap of catching up after yesterday’s attack and better defend against what’s going to happen tomorrow. ”
The survey was conducted in December 2018 and January 2019 and polled 3,100 IT decision makers from mid-sized businesses in the US, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, India, and South Africa.
