IT leaders need to be wary of becoming addicted to gambling on cybersecurity
Winning a bet is one of life’s little pleasures. People make bets all the time. Many people even like to place wagers on the outcome of those bets. The trouble is gambling can become an addiction. What many organizations don’t realize is just how often CISOs and CIOs are now routinely gambling on cybersecurity. A survey of 500 CISOs and CIOs published this week by Tanium, a provider of endpoint management tools finds 81 percent said they have refrained from making an important security update or patch, due to concerns about the impact it might have on business operations. Over half (52%) said they have done this on more than one occasion. A full 94 percent have made trade-offs among core elements of security hygiene and IT operations effectiveness. The survey also revealed that many times CIOs and CISOs are not even aware of the level of risk they face. The Tanium survey finds that due to a lack of visibility 80 percent of the survey respondents said they have found out that a critical update or patch they thought had been deployed had not actually updated some systems.
