96% of organizations hit by a security incident in the past year

By: HNS Staff/ Posted on 15 July 2014.

 

A new ForeScout report revealed that more than 96 percent of organizations experienced a significant IT security incident in the past year. The majority of IT organizations are aware that some of their security measures are immature or ineffective, but only 33 percent have high confidence that their organizations will improve their less mature security controls.

Increasing operational complexity and threat landscape have affected security capacity as more than 43 percent perceive problem prevention, identification, diagnosis and remediation are more challenging than two years ago. On aggregate, one in six organizations had five or more significant security incidents in the past 12 months.

While confidence in IT security management appears optimistic, overall findings showed a contradiction in efficacy and likely investment compared to where incidents have been most impactful.
