Eighty percent of C-level executives and IT security professionals believe that cyber attacks pose a greater risk to their nation than physical attacks, while 51 percent believe a cyber attacker is currently in their corporate network, or has been in the past year.

The findings are part of a Cyber-Ark’s survey, developed through interviews with 989 IT and C-level executives across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Analysis shows that continued reports of nation-based attacks on global critical infrastructure and businesses, combined with high-profile data breaches such as the NSA leak, have made the industry acutely aware of the threat that today’s cyber attackers pose.
