Breach Detection BREACH DETECTION

Cyber-attacks are becoming a run-of-the-mill occurrence: Nearly two-thirds (63%) of C-suite executives say that their companies experience significant cyber-attacks daily or weekly, according to a recent Accenture study of over 900 senior business personnel.

But there is a disconnect between awareness and action. Only 25% of respondents said their organization always incorporates measures into the design of their company’s technology and operating models to make them more resilient.

However, many execs seem to be burying their heads in the sand: 88% believe their cyber-defense strategy is robust, understood and fully functional. Nearly as many (86%) said that they measure their organization’s resilience to determine what improvements are needed. About half (53%) said their company has a continuity plan that they refresh as needed. 

“Given the prevalence of cyber-attacks on today’s companies and government organizations, the only question for most is when a cyber-attack will occur, not if it will occur,” said Brian Walker, managing director at Accenture Technology Strategy. Consequently, this suggests the requirement for the implementation of cyber security controls prior to a security breach.

“They cannot prevent an attack or failure, but they can mitigate the damage it can cause by taking steps to make their business more resilient, agile and fault-tolerant.”
