February 03, 2020 / Security Magazine

Despite higher levels of investment in advanced cybersecurity technologies over the past three years, less than one-fifth of organizations are effectively stopping cyberattacks and finding and fixing breaches fast enough to lower the impact, according to a new report from Accenture. Based on a survey of more than 4,600 enterprise security practitioners around the globe, Accenture’s Third Annual State of Cyber Resilience study explores the extent to which organizations prioritize security, the effectiveness of current security efforts, and the impact of new security-related investments. From detailed modeling of cybersecurity performance, the study identified a group of elite “leaders” — 17 percent of the research sample — that achieve significantly better results from their cybersecurity technology investments than other organizations, says a press release.
