Cyberattack threatens most businesses, Deloitte survey says
Many enterprises around the world think they are prepared for cyber attacks but the reality is that any organization is at risk of a security breach, consulting firm Deloitte warns.
Deloitte released the results from its sixth annual global Cyber Security Survey which was conducted with 121 technology, media, and telecommunications companies. Fifteen percent of the participants were from the Asia Pacific region.
The survey found that 88 percent of executives who took part did not see their company as vulnerable. In addition, 60 percent of participants rated their ability to respond to newly developed threats as either average or high.
According to Deloitte technology risk leader Dean Kingsley, this attitude needed to change as most passwords can be cracked in five hours.
"Businesses need to assume a breach will happen and prepare accordingly by shifting from pure prevention to detection and response planning," he said in a statement.
"The goal is to create a resilient organisation that can bounce back quickly from attacks."
