Get ahead of cybercrime

2014 Global Information Security Survey

Most organizations (67%) are facing rising threats in their information security risk environment, but over a third (37%) have no real-time insight on cyber risks. This is one of the topline findings of Get ahead of cybercrime, EY’s annual Global Information Security Survey 2014.

“Organizations must undertake a journey from a reactive to a proactive posture, transforming themselves from easy targets for cybercriminals into more formidable adversaries.”

Paul van Kessel
EY’s Global Risk Leader

With organizations increasingly reliant on vast amounts of digital data to do business, cybercrime is growing ever more damaging to an organization and its brands; today’s attackers are more organized, well-funded and sophisticated, attacking vulnerabilities in people and processes as well as technology.

Cyber attacks are headline news but the question is what can organizations do about it? EY’s new report guides businesses through today’s cyber threat landscape and helps organizations focus on their current critical risks, identify their cybersecurity strengths and weaknesses and improve on them, and suggests how they can prepare for the future.

Get ahead of cybercrime captures the responses of 1,825 C-suite leaders and Information Security and IT executives, representing most of the world’s largest and most-recognized global companies. Responses were received from 60 countries around the world and across nearly all industries.
