The 2017 Cyber Defence Monitor: A global perspective

Published on February 9, 2017

A free white paper from CUNA Strategic Services and BAE Systems.

New research reveals a surprising disconnect between C-suite executives and IT Decision Makers in defending against cyber threats. The research, conducted in eight countries around the world, shows that C-suite and IT leaders believe that each other is responsible for managing the response to a cyber-attack.
BAE Systems commissioned strategic insight analysts, Opinium to undertake an extensive piece of research to understand the current state of play when it comes to business cyber security. A total of 221 C-suite and 984 IT Decision Makers were polled to understand their concerns and perceptions of preparedness when it comes to their own cyber security.  The research shows that the C-suite level estimate the cost of a successful attack to be dramatically lower than their IT colleagues.

With regulatory fines starting to become a bigger issue, it's important to plan ahead and ensure that these teams are working together to narrow gaps in understanding, intelligence and responsibility. Read this whitepaper for an in depth analysis of their findings.
