Only 8% Indian managers believe they have a skilled cybersecurity team: Sophos
IT teams spend about a third of their time managing security, but struggle with a lack of expertise, budget and up to date technology.
"Staying on top of where threats are coming from takes dedicated expertise, but IT managers often have a hard time finding the right talent or don’t have a proper security system in place that allows them to respond quickly and efficiently to attacks," said Chester Wisniewski, principal research scientist, Sophos.
"If organizations can adopt a security system with products that work together to share intelligence and automatically react to threats, then IT security teams can avoid the trap of perpetually catching up after yesterday’s attack and better defend against what’s going to happen tomorrow."
The survey was conducted by Vanson Bourne across 3,100 IT decision makers in mid-sized businesses across 12 countries, including the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Germany and India.
