Technology findings

What is the state of information security in the tech sector?

Here’s what we learned from our 1,226 respondents:

  • 80% of technology respondents say their security activities are effective, and top executives are even more confident. In the C-suite, 90% of CEOs say they are confident in their security programme. CISOs report the highest level of confidence.

  • Technology companies detect fewer security incidents. The number of incidents detected by technology respondents decreased 7% over last year, perhaps an indication of the industry’s implementation of sophisticated tools. Average financial losses are up 15% over last year, not surprising given the cost and complexity of responding to incidents.
