The Cybersecurity Landscape: Challenges & How to Overcome Them

Companies must protect their own and their customers’ most private and essential information from cybercriminals, and it’s a 24/7 job that requires constant preparedness and instant response. With attacks coming from many different types of attack vectors across many different attack surfaces, cybersecurity is an ever-evolving priority for executives in all industries.

This study measured the state of cybersecurity today in the United States. Approximately 100 respondents from the Legal, Retail, Education, Energy, Finance, High-Tech, Healthcare, and Entertainment industries as well as the Government, were included in the study. We contacted companies with 1,000+ employees, with over $25 million in annual sales. The title levels of respondents included: CISO, CIO, Cybersecurity Director, Security Risk Officer/Manager, Directory of Security, and VP of Security.

This study focuses on these executives’ highest priority concerns and asked questions about their priorities, how they evaluate their activities, and what tools and resources they plan to use to improve their security posture.
