Improving Cybersecurity Results Through Evidence-based Analysis
Despite increased investment in cybersecurity, most companies are still in the early stages of cybersecurity maturity. Executives are often unclear on how their approaches compare with industry peers and where to invest for the best outcome. To advance their cybersecurity systems, and address escalating cyber risks and regulatory pressures, corporate leaders need an evidence-based playbook that provides comparative and quantitative analysis.
To fill the cybersecurity knowledge gap, ESI ThoughtLab is proud to launch Driving Cybersecurity Performance, an in-depth global survey of 1,000 CISOs in companies spanning the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The study will cover firms of varying sizes, from $50 million to over $50 billion in revenue, and across 15 industries in differing stages of digital maturity.
