The 2022 State of Security Posture Report reveals that cybersecurity teams are struggling to measure and improve their security posture as their organizations move to the cloud and as their leadership increasingly expects them to measure cyber risk in monetary terms due to the rise of ransomware and the general impact of cyber attacks to business.
The report has been produced by Cybersecurity Insiders, the 500,000 member online community of information security professionals to explore the latest trends, key challenges, gaps, and solution preferences for cybersecurity operations.
Key findings include:
• 62% of organizations are not confident in their security posture. Lack of visibility in their asset inventory and inability to prioritize vulnerabilities based on business risk contribute to this.
• 62% of organizations are not able to quantify their cyber risk in monetary units.
• 83% of organizations do not have a unified view into a cloud and on-premises security posture. This contributes to silos and inefficiencies in security posture management.
• Cybersecurity leaders struggle to communicate their security posture to the board and senior management.
