Research Report: 2015 Strategic Security Survey

by InformationWeekSep 15, 2015

The High Cost of Security Breaches

2014 has been dubbed the “Year of the Data Breach” with millions of records containing personally identifiable information and credit and debit card data siphoned off by cybercriminals. The effect this has on the individuals whose identity, money, or medical records have been taken can be devastating, but what is the impact on the organization whose security defenses failed to keep intruders out?

Fifteen percent of the 435 respondents to our InformationWeek/Dark Reading 2015 Strategic Security Survey suffered a targeted breach or compromise. Fifteen percent of respondents who had a breach or compromise estimated the cost of that breach at between $500,000 and a $1 million, with 6% putting the figure at $5 million or more.

Get all the insight in 2015 Strategic Security Report.


Research Report: How Enterprises Are Attacking the IT Security Challenge

by InformationWeekSep 02, 2015

Enterprise data breaches, new security vulnerabilities, and threats in the mobile and cloud arenas continue to dominate the headlines. Maybe that’s why 46% of the 435 respondents to our InformationWeek/Dark Reading 2015 Strategic Security Survey say that this year they have a bigger information security budget than last year. So how are they going to be investing those extra dollars? Firewalls, email filtering, endpoint protection, and VPNs are again the four most widely deployed security technologies. But 24% of respondents don’t even measure the value of their security investments, so for many enterprises, new investment decisions may be based more on subjective opinion than hard facts.

Information security spending will range from 1% to 10% of this year’s annual IT budget for 51% of our respondents. But for some enterprises, increased spending hasn’t helped much: 15% of our respondents suffered a targeted breach or compromise costing between $500,000 and $1 million, with 6% putting the figure at $5 million or more.
