Research firm Forrester’s “Global Business Technographics Security Survey, 2016” found that 49 percent of decision-makers interviewed had experienced at least one cyber breach during the past 12 months. Of these respondents, 55 percent had suffered an internal incident involving an employee or a third-party business partner.
The survey also ranked top external cyber attack methods: software vulnerabilities, user interaction (phishing, malicious link, or email attachment) and use of stolen credentials (logins, encryption keys). These statistics – and countless others – demonstrate the need for businesses and consumers to address the fundamentals of cybersecurity.
