Perfect Storm For Cybersecurity Risk

Greg Masters, Managing Editor of SC Media does a great job painting a clear picture of cybersecurity this year from the statistics recently published in ISACA’s “State of Cyber Security Study 2017”.  It is clearly a“Perfect storm: Not only is the volume and complexity of cyberattacks increasing, but there’s also a lack of resources necessary to hire skilled personnel.”

Rob Clyde, board director of ISACA and executive chair of White Cloud Security, spoke to SC Media and highlighted the following stats:

50Organizations confident in security team’s ability to handle anything beyond simple cyber incidents

27Organizations planning to spend $2,500 or more on training per person for cybersecurity in 2017

65Percentage of respondents said they had a a CISO – up 15 percentage points from the prior year
