What We Can Learn From PwC’s Latest Security Survey (IBM Security Intelligence)

[svg-table-content]

In October 2018, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) released the latest edition of “The Global State of Information Security Survey.” For this report, the professional services firm surveyed over 9,000 leaders, including CEOs, chief financial officers (CFOs), chief information officer (CIOs) and chief information security officers (CISOs), from 122 countries.

This year, PwC is releasing survey results in batches, starting with its “Strengthening Digital Society Against Cyber Shocks” report. The 20-page report is the latest snapshot of the state of affairs when it comes to organizational — as well as regional and national — maturity in cybersecurity, cyber risk oversight and cyber resilience.

We’ve organized the key findings from PwC’s security survey into three categories: items that indicate progress (the good), negative issues that continue to plague organizations around the globe (the bad), and issues that indicate a lack of progress or, worse, a downslide toward more chaotic and dangerous cyber ecosystems (the ugly).
