Survey Reports 83% of Companies Suffer Crippling Business Damage During the First 24 Hours of an IT Outage

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Netenrich, a Resolution Intelligence® company, today released "Pivoting to Risk-Driven Security Operations," a global survey of IT and security professionals. The survey found that 83% of companies would suffer business damage during the first 24 hours of an outage and thereafter, which comes as no surprise with recent surges in ransomware and other attacks wreaking havoc across IT infrastructures. The survey also revealed interesting findings and contradictions when it comes to scaling security operations:

Security teams are trapped doing the same thing they have been doing for years ? reactive security. They're adding more tools, needing more resources and chasing thousands of alerts while lacking the contextual data and prioritization that's highly needed.

"Organizations fail to shift to a proactive approach that prioritizes security defenses around the most likely, highest business-impacting attack vectors," said John Bambenek, Primary Threat Researcher at Netenrich. "Security teams need to start evaluating business risk based on the likelihood of attack success and mapping that attack success to what it would actually cost the business. Focus on the critical issues that matter most to reduce the attack and outage impact."

The survey finds that companies want to do more threat modeling, incident analysis and risk management, however, very few employ it or even know how:

"Our industry has taken an IT internal view to security rather than an attack external view of security," adds Bambenek. "Organizations need to shift mindsets, adopt a managed risk, not an IT-based approach. Security operations needs to be data-driven and predictive where continuous threat modeling runs at its core. This is where companies like Netenrich can help."

Administered by Dimensional Research, a total of 333 qualified global IT and security professionals participated in the survey and carried enterprise security responsibilities at medium to enterprise-sized companies. Other key findings from the report include:

Netenrich is hosting a webinar discussing survey findings with security ops perspectives from John Bambenek and David Gehringer, Dimensional Research analyst, on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at 10 AM (PT). Register here.
