ESG just published a new research report titled, Cybersecurity Analytics and Operations in Transition, based upon a survey of 412 cybersecurity and IT professionals working at large midmarket (i.e., 500 to 999 employees) and enterprise (i.e. more than 1,000 employees) organizations in North America and Western Europe.
The data is quite interesting, to say the least, so look for lots of blogs from me over the next few weeks on a myriad of security operations topics we covered in this project. Furthermore, my esteemed colleague Doug Cahill and I are hosting a webinar this Wednesday, July 19. Feel free to attend, more details can be found here.
When I do end-user research on cybersecurity topics, I usually ask respondents a basic question: How are things today compared to 2 years ago? This research project was no exception and, as it turns out, 27% of survey respondents say that cybersecurity analytics and operations is much more difficult than 2 years ago while another 45% say that cybersecurity analytics and operations is somewhat more difficult today than 2 years ago.
