Microsoft Ireland researchers have discovered that every 3 in 4 of the largest organizations operating in Ireland were worried by Cyber Threats after screening the employee security habits in the respective organizations.
The focus of the researching team was on 4 key areas which include Identity Access Management, Threat Protection, Information Protection, and Security Management.
Microsoft which conducted a similar survey on 900 employees working in Large Irish Companies in 2019 concludes that there have been no changes in the attitude towards cyberattacks of the IT decision-makers when it comes to the improvement of the Cybersecurity posture in their respective companies.
Coming to the aspect of employing a dual-device authentication system, 69% of employers were in favor, while only 41% of them welcomed it on a positive note.
“As businesses in today’s world are facing ever-escalating cyber threats which are pushing their IT security limits to no-boundaries, it is becoming tough to investigate security alerts that are being received daily”, said Des Ryan, Solutions Director, Microsoft Ireland.
Ryan added that the IT decision-makers are living in a false world where a security gap has been created between organizations on how secure they were when it comes to Cybersecurity and how the actual security habits were leaving them open to data loss or hacking.
So, according to his insights, it’s high time for companies to consider making a preferential approach when it comes to data security and embraces new procedures and technologies to successfully neutralize their organization’s risks.
