About this talk

Did you know that 86% of organizations experienced a successful attack in 2021? Up from 81% the prior year, the largest year-over-year increase in six years. CyberEdge’s 2021 Cyberthreat Defense Report (CDR) has become the de facto 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 eighth year, the 2021 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 May 11, 2021 at 1:00 pm ET/10 am PT for highlights of the results and get key insights including: - The chronic shortage of IT security skilled staff is still prevalent; hiring gaps exist across all major IT security roles - Lack of skilled personnel is the #2 obstacle to effective defense against cyberthreats - The fastest and most economical solution is to train existing IT members to fill security positions - IT security professionals see personal and organization-wide benefits of cybersecurity certifications, especially for cloud security, software security, security administration, and management - And more!
