At the very least, organizations need to be familiar with cybersecurity fundamentals.
In just taking a look at last year, 2020 posed a whole variety of unprecedented challenges for companies and individuals alike. In the face of a global pandemic, forest fires and political unrest, it is easy to forget a major albeit less “tangible” danger: 2020 was a record-breaking year for data lost due to breaches as well as the sheer numbers of cyber-attacks.
According to cybersecurity professionals, despite all the warnings and high-profile breaches, the state of readiness for most organizations when it comes to cybersecurity is abysmal.
For example, nearly 80% of senior IT employees and security leaders believe their companies lack sufficient protection against cyber-attacks despite increased IT security investments made in 2020.
Studies also show that on average, every employee has access to 11 million files – but only 5% of companies’ folders are properly protected. This combined with just 57% of companies conducting a data security risk assessment in 2020 is asking for security trouble.
But perhaps most alarming, is that despite the warnings and statistics, more than 77% of organizations do not have an incident response plan even though more than 93% of healthcare organizations reported at least one security breach in the last three years.
