MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and
new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various
manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of
security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well.
Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years
consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat
detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the
security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not
a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Among your primary responsibilities as a board member is providing advice on both business strategy and enterprise risk. A general understanding of risk management is essential when looking at cyber risk specifically. Ultimately, an enterprise should consider adding cybersecurity expertise to its board membership, but all members can benefit from increasing their understanding about how cyber risk affects corporate strategy and the overall enterprise risk profile. To provide effective strategic advice to company leadership on cyber risk, you must ask the right questions, including whether a company does ongoing cyber risk assessment and management, and how.

The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.

Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working
together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the
environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application
development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise.
This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability
findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks.

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
