Executives lack confidence in their cyber security

More than two-thirds of executives are concerned their companies will not be able to stop such threats, and one in five say their biggest concern is not knowing whether an attack is underway, according to ThreatTrack Security.

However, these fears seem to have had little influence in encouraging executives to protect their networks by adopting best practices in cyber-defense technologies and specialized personnel. Of those surveyed, 42% report not having an Incident Response Team in place, and nearly half (47%) report that they are not making use of advanced malware analysis tools.

The independent blind survey of 200 C-level executives at enterprises was conducted by Opinion Matters on behalf of ThreatTrack Security in June 2013. The results highlight the opinions of CSO, CIO, CEO and CTO executives related to the cyber security practices of their companies.
