Today we released the results of new research: What Keeps You up at Night – the 2019 Report. The report looks at over 350 organizations across North America and reveals the security weaknesses and concerns within organizations. On average, 81 percent of organizations had some degree of concern around security issues.
2018 was a prolific year for successful cyberattacks, and many of them were caused by human error. IT organizations are tasked with establishing and maintaining a layered security defense. The largest concern, as demonstrated again in this report, is employees making errors. Organizations must start with establishing a security culture, and in order to combat the escalation of social engineering, they have to ensure users are trained and tested.
