Report: Most Organizations not Prepared for Cyberattacks
December 27, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Is your institutional or commercial facility prepared to handle a cyberattack? If you answered no, you are not alone.
Only 32 percent of IT and security professionals say their organization has a high level of cyber resilience, and a whopping 66 percent of respondents say their organization is not prepared to recover from a cyberattack, according to the annual Cyber Resilient Organization Study conducted by Resilient, an IBM Company, and the Ponemon Institute.

The survey includes responses from more than 2,400 security and IT professionals from around the world.
How Common are Attacks Through a BAS?
Some statistics from the report include:
• 75 percent of respondents admit they do not have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan (CSIRP) that is applied consistently across the organization.
• 52 percent of those with a CSIRP have either not reviewed for updated the plan since it was put in place, or have no set plan to do so.
• 41 percent say the time to resolve a cyber-incident has increased in the last year.
• 66 percent say insufficient planning and preparedness is the top barrier to cyber resilience.
Other key takeaways include:
• 53 percent of the people surveyed said they suffered at least one data breach in the past two years
• 74 percent say they faced human threats due to human error in the past year
• 14 percent test their incident response plans more than one time per year
