One need only to look at the headlines to know that data breaches are common and growing in size and frequency. At the same time, as threats grow more sophisticated, organizations are adding more mobile and Internet of Things devices to their IT environments, increasing their risk surface.
To study the state of IT security, CDW commissioned the Cybersecurity Insight Report through IDG, the world’s leading technology, media, data and marketing services company. For the December survey, respondents were required to be involved in the purchase process for cybersecurity and/or risk-mitigation solutions and services.
Of those surveyed, 46 percent had experienced a serious security breach in the past 12 months, and an additional 22 percent had discovered a near-breach.
