The Global CISO Study: How Leading Organizations Respond to Security Threats and Keep Data Safe report, ServiceNow surveyed 300 CISOs and found that 81 percent said they believe data breaches in their company are going unaddressed. Another 78 percent said they are concerned that they don’t have the capability to even detect a data breach (if that’s true, then no wonder the breaches aren’t being addressed). And when they are able to identify potential cybersecurity events, 70 percent admit they struggle to prioritize the security events. And as the report stated:
This failure to prioritize can paralyze organizations that try to address all threats equally, given that they can be hit by thousands of cyberattacks daily.
There is a cause and effect with these CISO numbers. Slightly more than one in 10 CISOs reported that their organization experienced a significant breach within the past three years that resulted in financial and/or reputational loss.
