Confidence in security measures is soaring in the C-Suite.

Entertainment & media findings

What is the state of information security in the entertainment & media sector?

Here’s what we learned from our 221 respondents:

  • 71% of E&M respondents believe their security activities are effective, and most top executives are even more confident. Confidence is soaring in the C-suite, with 79% of E&M CEOs saying they are confident in their security programme. Note, however, that CISOs—those with direct responsibility for information security—are the least confident among executives.

  • E&M information security budgets increase significantly. E&M security budgets average $3.6 million this year, a gain of 76% over 2012. These organisations understand that today’s elevated threat landscape demands a substantial boost in security investment.
