2015 Security Predictions from the Front Lines

2014-11-18 18:10

ThreatTrack Security today published the study 2015 Predictions from the Front Lines which found that expectations for data security next year are surprisingly optimistic given the harsh reality of 2014, which has been the worst year on record for data breaches. Enterprise security staffers are so confident that 81% of survey respondents said they would “personally guarantee that their company’s customer data will be safe in 2015.”

Key findings from the survey include:

  • Despite 68% of all respondents feeling their organization is more likely to be the target of a cyberattack next year, 94% are optimistic that their organization’s ability to prevent data breaches will improve in 2015.
  • The types of threats that organizations are most concerned about in 2015 are Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) (65%), targeted malware attacks (61%) and spear phishing attacks (42%). Companies fear mobile threats (22%) least.
  • Respondents see speed and prioritization as important to fortifying cyber defenses in 2015. When asked what their company needs to do next year to prevent it from becoming the next data breach headline:
    • 70% cite investing in advanced cybersecurity defenses for rapid detection of sophisticated malware
    • 58% indicated they would invest in technology to help prioritize security threats
    • 56% said they would start updating their security policies as recommended by the CISO
    • 54% cite investing in threat intelligence services
    • 51% said replacing ineffective endpoint security solutions
  • 95% of security staffers believe senior management will be more responsive to their team’s security recommendations in 2015, suggesting that CISOs are becoming more successful at driving improvements in enterprise cybersecurity.
