State of Cybersecurity Survey 2019, Part I – Security Skills Gap by the Numbers
State of Cybersecurity 2019 reports the results of the fifth annual ISACA global State of Cybersecurity Survey. While some findings pointed to unforeseen trends, many survey results reinforce previous years’ findings—specifically that the need for trained and experienced cybersecurity professionals vastly outweighs the supply. State of Cybersecurity 2019 provides a distinctive view of cybersecurity from the perspective of those who define the field—cybersecurity managers and practitioners. This is the first report based on the survey, which focuses on the current trends in cybersecurity workforce development, staffing, budget and gender diversity.
State of Cybersecurity Survey 2019, Part II – Attacks, Awareness and Governance
State of Cybersecurity 2019 reports the results of the fifth annual ISACA global State of Cybersecurity Survey. Some findings reinforce discoveries from prior years—specifically, that the top attacks and threat actors remain largely the same. Other findings provide new insight for cybersecurity management: respondents indicate that cybersecurity departments are best served when reporting to either a chief information security officer (CISO) or chief executive officer (CEO), rather than reporting to a chief information officer (CIO). State of Cybersecurity 2019 captures an outlook on cybersecurity from the perspective of those who define the field—cybersecurity managers and practitioners. This second of two reports focuses on current trends in cybersecurity attack vectors and response methodologies, organizational governance and program management.
The Business Impact of Cybersecurity Culture
The Cybersecurity Culture Report from ISACA and CMMI Institute shows there is much progress to be made, as 95 percent of global survey respondents identify a gap between their current and desired organizational culture of cybersecurity.
