For the fourth year in a row, ISACA has surveyed security leaders worldwide to determine their insights and experiences with key cybersecurity issues, ranging from workforce challenges and opportunities to the emerging threat landscape.

Part 1 of the report is now available and provides key insights into the current trends in the threat landscape. Among the findings:

  • Overall results confirm that cybersecurity remains dynamic and turbulent as the field continues to mature
  • Skill challenges remain but are better understood
  • Gender disparity is present but can be mitigated
  • It is predicted that budgets will increase at a higher rate than last year-64% of respondents indicate that their security budgets will expand
  • Confidence in preparedness is increasing but organizational alignment is inconsistent

  • Motivation remains monetary and ransomware countermeasures are nearing ubiquity
