Technology and security professionals in North America and Europe profess a great deal of confidence in their cyberdefenses, despite the current spate of high-profile breaches worldwide, according to a new survey made possible by the Aspen Institute Homeland Security Program and Intel Security in advance of the 2015 Aspen Security Forum.
According to McAfee® Labs reports, critical infrastructure organizations are under constant cyberattack, yet no publicly apparent, massive outage has occurred so far. Energy producers, financial services, transportation companies, telecommunications companies, and governments are all potential targets. This report looks at the challenges facing these critical infrastructure organizations in France, Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom as they work to secure vital systems.
The survey polled information technology and security professionals with an average 12 years of security experience, representing 625 critical infrastructure organizations.* They were asked about their concerns, vulnerabilities, investments, previous attacks, and their interest in cooperating with national and international organizations to improve cyberdefenses. The survey’s major findings are below.
