The cybersecurity market has reached a point whereby organisations need to shift their strategies and have a new, proactive approach to their cybersecurity, according to a report by 451 Research.
Hurdles that organizations need to overcome to successfully shift their strategies
These were identified as:
- A profusion of tools and data that complicates – and too often, frustrates – an effective strategy
- An over-reliance on people to resolve security issues, and the unsustainable business model it represents
- A “one size fits all” mentality that leads to tools and processes insufficiently flexible to serve real-world people and processes – and too often leaves security poorly aligned with business realties
- Lopsided investments in reactive measures that too often result from these failures.
