More than one-third surveyed say that once an attack penetrates their network, they cannot see it or do anything to stop it. The vast majority of respondents (84 percent) say their organizations are vulnerable to advanced, targeted attacks.
CounterTack's "Cyber-readiness Reality Check" surveyed 100 information security executives at enterprise organizations with revenues greater than $100 million, spanning a number of industries including aerospace & automotive, energy, financial services, government, healthcare, high technology, manufacturing and retail. Three-quarters of respondents were C-level executives — CISOs or CSOs — and the remaining quarter filled senior-level security roles within their organizations.
The report reveals a diverse and well-informed group who recognize the nature of today's advanced, targeted threats, but are ill-prepared to detect and thwart them.
