Most Buildings Not Prepared For Cyberattacks

12/28/2016 |

75% of IT administrators admit they do not have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan (CSIRP) that is applied consistently across the organization

Is your building prepared in the event of a hack or a virus? Only 32% of IT and security professionals say their organization has a high level of cyber resilience, and an even larger percentage, 66% of respondents say their organization is not prepared to recover from a cyberattack, according to the annual Cyber Resilient Organization Study conducted by Resilient, an IBM Company, and the Ponemon Institute. The survey includes responses from more than 2,400 security and IT professionals from around the world.

"This year's Cyber Resilience study shows that organizations globally are still not prepared to manage and mitigate a cyberattack," says John Bruce, CEO and co-founder of Resilient, an IBM Company. "Security leaders can drive significant improvement by making incident response a top priority – focusing on planning, preparation, and intelligence." 

Key findings from the report:

• 75% of respondents admit they do not have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan (CSIRP) that is applied consistently across the organization.
• 52% of those with a CSIRP have either not reviewed for updated the plan since it was put in place, or have no set plan to do so. 
• 41% say the time to resolve a cyber-incident has increased in the last year.
• 66% say insufficient planning and preparedness is the top barrier to cyber resilience.
