As we look across the landscape, we see that cyberattacks continue to succeed in all business sectors. In the cases we have observed, the cyberattack leveraged weak security controls and, as a result, could have been prevented by organizations adopting security best practices. A new study shows that ransomware, phishing, social engineering, denial of service (DoS) attacks, and the business fallout of a data breach rank as the top concerns of global organizations.
The recently published Cyber Risk Index, a study by Trend Micro and the Ponemon Institute, indicates that over three-quarters of organizations expect to suffer a cyberattack in the next 12 months. One-fourth of which says an attack is "very conceivable."According to the report, more than 80% of the 3,400 CISOs, IT professionals, and managers that completed the survey suggested their organizations were targeted with one or more successful cyberattacks in the past year, and 35% suffered seven or more attacks, which covers the second half of 2021.
