InfoSecurity: Companies Hunker Down In Response To Targeted Attacks

Posted by Jill Newbury    Aug 14, 2012 8:22:00 AM

Nearly half of companies have been the victim of a targeted cyberatttack within the past year and most favor adopting a military-style approach to combatting those attacks, according to a survey by CounterTack.

One-third of those companies that were attacked lack confidence in their organizations’ readiness to defend against further aggression, according to the survey of 100 infosec executives at companies with revenues greater than $100 million.

Thirty-six percent of respondents indicated that if an attacker got inside their perimeter defenses and into their networks, they would not be able to see or stop the attack. When asked to grade themselves at discovering in-progress attacks quickly enough to mitigate damage and prevent catastrophic loss, respondents were more likely to give themselves a “C” versus an “A.”
