How well prepared are organizations to respond to a potentially devastating data breach - such as the likes that hit Anthem, OPM or even Ashley Madison? Are their security programs and controls truly as effective as security leaders believe them to be? These are among the questions answered by the results of the 2015 Breach Preparedness and Response Study, produced by ISMG and FireEye.
Among the findings: Only 10 percent of respondents give their organizations an "A" for their ability to quickly detect and respond to targeted attacks. And their single weakest area of breach preparedness and response: In-house staff and skills.
Some stand-out figures from this survey:
- 51% of respondents do not have a breach response plan that's been updated and tested in past year.
- 56% rate the value of their current threat intelligence at average or below.
- 67% rate as average or below the maturity of their in-house breach response skills in comparison to those of threat-actors targeting their organizations.
