“It’s not an easy time to be a CISO – there’s a lot of pain obvious in these survey results.”
– Dr. Larry Ponemon
It continues to be challenging being a Chief Information Security Officer today – and 2018 promises no rest.
As high-profile data breaches escalate, CISOs, CIOs and other information security professionals believe their organizations are more likely than ever to fall victim to a data breach or cyberattack.
What’s more, they’re most worried about something simple, and it’s not even technology.
This new survey features insights from 612 information security professionals from diverse industries:
- The top security concerns of CISOs in 2018
- What single factor worries CISOs and information security professionals most
- What factors are driving 67% of CISOS to believe they are more likely to fall victim to a cyberattack or data breach in 2018
The survey was created and fielded by Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute, a leading research “think tank” dedicated to advancing privacy, data protection and information security practices, and sponsored by Opus (www.opus.com), a leading global provider of compliance and risk management solutions.
