Keeper Security's Cybersecurity Census Finds U.S. Businesses are Unprepared for Escalation in Cyberattacks

Keeper Security | September 15, 2022

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust, zero-knowledge and FedRAMP Authorized cybersecurity software, today released findings from its second annual Cybersecurity Census. The report explores insights from IT decision-makers at businesses and organizations across the U.S., revealing that most respondents expect the onslaught of cyberattacks to intensify over the next year, yet 32% lack a management platform for IT secrets–posing a significant risk to organizational security. The 2022 U.S.Cybersecurity Census Report explores the ongoing threats of cyberattacks and the need for cybersecurity investment. The report maps the evolving cybersecurity landscape as hybrid and remote work have transformed businesses over the past two years. According to survey findings, the average U.S. business experiences 42 cyberattacks annually—between three to four each month. Still, fewer than half (44%) of respondents provide their employees with guidance or best practices for governing passwords and access management. IT leaders reveal a lack of preparedness for cyberattacks U.S. businesses face many cyberattacks each year, significantly impacting their organizations. Most respondents agree the total number of attacks will increase over the next year, with 39% predicting the number of successful cyberattacks will also rise. Most organizations in the U.S. believe they're prepared to fend off cyberattacks, with 64% of respondents rating their preparedness at least an eight on a 10-point scale and 28% rating themselves as a 10/10. At the same time, the majority of respondents (57%) say it is taking longer to respond to attacks and only 8% say responses are getting faster. Though most report feeling prepared for attacks, leaders admit their tech stacks lack essential tools. Nearly one-third of respondents (32%) lack a management platform for IT secrets, such as API keys, database passwords and privileged credentials. 84% are concerned about the dangers of hard-coded credentials in source code but 25% don't have software to remove them. More than one-quarter of respondents (26%) said they lack a remote connection management solution to secure remote access to IT infrastructure. With the rise in hybrid work and remote work, this is a significant security gap. This lack of investment in cybersecurity tools is alarming, especially considering the lasting impact of cyberattacks that survey respondents revealed. Nearly one-third (31%) suffered a disruption of partner or customer operations in the wake of a cyberattack and the same percentage experienced theft of financial information. 18% of organizations experienced theft of money, with the average amounting to more than $75,000, while 37% lost $100,000 or more. 23% experienced the inability to carry out business operations. In addition to direct costs, cyberattacks can cause lasting damage to business perception and client trust. More than one-quarter of respondents (28%) suffered reputational damage due to a successful cyberattack and 19% reported losing business or a contract. "The volume and pace at which cyberattacks are hitting businesses is increasing and with that come severe financial, reputational and organizational penalties," said Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder of Keeper Security. "Leadership must prioritize cybersecurity, enabling their security teams to address rapid shifts in technology and distributed remote work. The impact these shifts have on cybersecurity are both pervasive and extreme. Building a culture of trust, accountability and responsiveness is critical." U.S. businesses must take immediate action against cyber threats Cybersecurity is a pillar of every good business and these findings underscore the need for business leaders to make cybersecurity a part of organizational culture. U.S. business leaders are working to source the necessary talent to stay secure. Nearly three-quarters (71%) of respondents have made new hires in cybersecurity over the past year and 58% say they've increased cybersecurity training. A devastating cyberattack is one stolen password away, but despite this threat, fewer than half (48%) of respondents state they have plans to invest in password management, visibility tools for network-based threats or infrastructure secrets management. Only 44% of respondents provide their employees with guidance and best practices governing passwords and access management. 30% of respondents allow employees to set and manage their passwords and admit that employees often share access to passwords. A mere 26% have a highly sophisticated framework for visibility and control of identity security. Many organizations are considering future investments with 73% of respondents expecting their cybersecurity budgets to increase. However, they face being outmatched by rising external threats and the demands created by existing weaknesses. Cybersecurity in company culture Employees understand the dangers of both external and internal threats. An overwhelming 79% of IT professionals are concerned about a breach from within their organization and 47% have suffered a breach of that nature. As more employees work remotely, businesses must rethink their investments in order to maintain security. In fact, 40% of respondents highlighted remote and hybrid work as a top concern, with rising external threats close behind at 39%. IT leaders themselves admit a lack of transparency in cyber incident reporting within their organizations, with nearly half of respondents (48%) being aware of a cyberattack, but keeping it to themselves. Businesses must foster a sense of trust and transparency in their organizations, creating an open dialogue to recognize the scale of the cybersecurity challenges their organization faces. Only with that recognition can resources be devoted to education and embedding a cybersecurity mindset into the organization's culture. Keeper's 2022 U.S. Cybersecurity Census Report demonstrates that cyberattacks present a profound and ongoing threat. Preventative measures, including investment, education and cultural shifts, are essential for businesses to drive resilience and protect their organizations from cybercriminals. Methodology The report yielded results from 516 IT leaders and decision-makers in businesses across the U.S. About Keeper Security Keeper Security, Inc. ("Keeper") is transforming the way organizations and individuals protect their credentials, secrets, connections and sensitive digital assets to significantly reduce the risks of identity security-related cyberattacks, while gaining visibility and control.

Safe Security Introduces Free Assessments to Provide Trusted Financial Risk Calculations for Cyber Attacks and Cyber Insurance Discussions

Safe Security | August 17, 2022

Safe Security, a global leader in cybersecurity risk quantification and management, today announced two industry-first assessment tools to empower organizations to make holistic financial decisions based on their actual cyber risk. At no cost, organizations can access Safe Security’s Interactive Cost Calculator, as well as the Cyberinsurance Assessment, which are designed to enable data-driven discussions about risk and coverage requirements. “Executive leadership from the CEO and board members, to CISOs, risk teams, and CFOs are asking questions like, ‘how much will a cyber attack cost us?’ Or, ‘how much should our cyber insurance cost?’ Today, those leaders either do not have a financial figure at all or possess a financial figure from a ‘black-box’ approach that they can’t explain or trust,” said Saket Modi, co-founder and CEO of Safe Security. “Based on our research, Safe Security is offering organizations the opportunity to understand the financial impact of a cyber attack with full visibility into how the assessment is calculated so you can trust and explain the numbers. Knowledge is power, and our mission is to arm you with an unbiased assessment that can be used for risk discussions and insurance negotiations.” Interactive Cost Calculator for Cyber Attacks Safe Security’s Interactive Cost Calculator for cyber attacks is a free, tunable calculator that enables organizations to understand their potential financial risk due to a cyber attack, such as ransomware. The easy-to-use assessment gathers specific inputs about the company, and provides a cost estimate based on Safe Security’s cost model that takes into account cost drivers associated with security incidents. The output can be customized to the parameters of an organization to further refine the estimate. Inside-Out Cyberinsurance Assessment Safe Security’s Inside-Out Cyberinsurance Assessment helps companies better understand their cyber health and reduce premiums. Cyber insurance premiums keep rising despite increasing cybersecurity investments. Companies can gain specific guidance on how their cybersecurity risk posture compares to others in the same industry, how much coverage they need, and the top actions they should take to ensure a successful cyber insurance renewal. The SAFE platform runs a cyber risk assessment based on the following data points: API feeds from the organization’s internal technology environment Maturity of the organization’s cybersecurity policies and products About Safe Security Safe Security is a leader in cybersecurity and digital business risk quantification management, with a mission to build a safer digital future. Safe’s cyber risk quantification and management (CRQM) platform enables organizations to manage cyber risks in real-time. Its platform automatically collects signals from inside and outside a company’s environment to give the company-specific cyber risk rating, or SAFE Score, the financial impact of a potential breach, and an action plan. This enables organizations to have a common language across teams - from the board all the way down to an analyst - to align with a consistent risk metric. Other benefits include justifying investments in cybersecurity and purchase of cyber insurance for the organization.

Cybersecurity platform CrowdSec announces new Enterprise features

CrowdSec | July 13, 2022

CrowdSec, the French security startup enhancing the open-source and collaborative cyber security solution landscape, has today announced that its IP reputation tool has expanded its features in a paid version for enterprises. While CrowdSec's Community product remains available for individual users for free, the new Professional and Enterprise features will allow organizations to maximize scarce IT resources by crowdsourcing a higher volume of cyber threat intelligence (CTI). At a time where cyber attacks are on the rise and bad actors leverage vulnerabilities stemming from scarce IT budgets and talent pools, it is important that enterprises equip themselves with the right resources to increase their capacity. That is why CrowdSec, through crowd-power, compiles a collaborative IP reputation database from its tens of thousands of users in 160+ countries. With over 3.5 million malicious IPs reported and curated to date, CrowdSec makes cyber defense a collaborative effort and increases the capacity of individual defenders to protect themselves from the global network of bad actors. From $99 per month for the Professional tier (with custom pricing for the tailored Enterprise offering), users will benefit from: Data retention of 30 days compared to seven days in the free version Multi-user set up for organizations A brand new filter feature 500 IP intelligence requests per day The ability to subscribe to topic specific and verticalized IP blocklists (ecommerce, blockchain, TOR, VPN points, etc). Dedicated support service Filter internet background noise "Shifting to a collaborative approach is critical for enterprises to increase their capacity in light of skill shortages and scarce resources. Equipping enterprises of all sizes with crowd-sourced threat intelligence levels the playing field between small and large organizations and strengthens the resilience of the defense community as a whole. "Collaborative tools like CrowdSec are more important now than ever, which is why we've launched these enhanced offerings to strengthen what enterprises can do." CrowdSec founder and CEO Philippe Humeau About CrowdSec Based in Paris and founded in 2019, CrowdSec is an open-source & collaborative IPS generating crowd-sourced CTI. CrowdSec takes a collaborative approach to cybersecurity by analyzing behaviors, responding to attacks, and sharing signals across the community.
