A record 71% of organizations were compromised by ransomeware last year with 63% of ransomware victims paying ransoms, encouraging cybercriminals to increase their attacks.
CyberEdge’s 2022 Cyberthreat Defense Report (CDR) has become the standard for assessing organizations’ security posture, for gauging perceptions of IT security professionals and for ascertaining current and planned investments in IT security infrastructure.
Now in its ninth year, the 2022 CDR assesses the views of 1,200 IT security professionals representing 17 countries and 19 industries. It’s the most geographically comprehensive view of IT security perceptions in our industry.
Join (ISC)2 (a sponsor of this year’s study) and CyberEdge on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 1:00PM Eastern for highlights and key insights of the results, including:
• Lack of skilled personnel and low security awareness inhibit IT security’s success
• 84% of organizations are experiencing a shortfall of skilled IT personnel; IT security administrators, analysts and architects are in shortest supply
• Nearly all respondents (99%) agreed that achieving a specialty cybersecurity certification would help their careers; the top choices were cloud security, software security and security administration
