IBM’s recent announcement of its 5th annual Cyber Resilient Organization Report, conducted by the Ponemon Institute.
Key findings from the report:
- More orgs (26%) have adopted formal, enterprise-wide security response plans over the past 5 years, compared to 18% of respondents in 2015.
- Amongst those with a formal security response plan, only 1/3 (17% of respondents) had also developed specific playbooks for common attack types.
- The # of security tools used has a negative impact; orgs that use 50+ security tools ranked themselves 8% lower in their ability to detect, and 7% lower in their ability to respond to an attack, compared to those with less tools.
- Over the past two years, only 39% of companies with a formal security response plan in place experienced a disruptive security incident, compared to 62% of those with less formal plans.
