Is Your Company a Security Leader or Laggard?

Over the last few years, cyber-security has emerged as a central challenge for organizations large and small. And while there's no shortage of news stories and analyst reports chronicling the severity of the risk and the complexities of addressing it, there has generally been little attention devoted to how to effectively execute on the task. A new report from Accenture in conjunction with Ponemon Institute takes direct aim at the issue. The “Cyber Security Leap: From Laggard to Leader,” examines a number of critical issues and offers insights into the practices that leaders and laggards adopt. The study found that best practice companies typically leap ahead of the competition and the marketplace by focusing on three crucial areas: governance, innovation and technology. However, there are additional nuances and complexities to cyber-security. Here are some of the key findings from the survey, which includes responses from business and IT leaders at 247 companies across 10 major industries.
