Security resilience is top of mind for the vast majority of executives; 96% say its highly important to their business, according to the Cisco Security Outcomes Report, Volume 3.
And with good reason: data breaches, ransomware, and other cyberattacks continue to plague organizations. In fact, the Cisco report found that 62% of organizations have experienced a security event that affected their resilience, including:
- 52% experienced a network or data breach
- 51% suffered a network or system outage
- 47% were affected by a ransomware event
- 46% reported a DDoS attack
All these incidents are a big deal, many with negative impact: interrupted IT/communications, disrupted supply chain, impaired internal operations, lasting brand damage, loss of competitive advantage, and much more.
