ISACA’s January 2016 Cybersecurity Snapshot looks at cybersecurity issues facing organizations this month and beyond—from reactions to new cybersecurity legislation, to insights on information sharing and top cyber threats.
Among the key findings from nearly 3,000 IT and cybersecurity professionals worldwide:
- The top three cyberthreat concerns for 2016 are social engineering, insider threats and advanced persistent threats (APTs).
- 84 percent of respondents believe there is a medium to high likelihood of a cybersecurity attack disrupting critical infrastructure (e.g., electrical grid, water supply systems) this year.
- 72 percent of respondents say they are in favor of the US Cybersecurity Act, but only 46% say their organizations would voluntarily participate in cyber threat information sharing, as outlined in the Act.
