Cybersecurity #Incident #Response Plans Still #Lacking

Nearly eight in 10 (77) percent of respondents in a recent survey from IBM and the Ponemon Institute admitted that they do not have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan applied consistently across their organization.

Nearly half of the 2,800 respondents reported that their incident response plan is either informal/ad hoc or completely non-existent. Conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by IBM Resilient, “The 2018 Cyber Resilient Organization” is the third annual benchmark study on cyber resilience—an organization’s ability to maintain its core purpose and integrity in the face of cyberattacks. The global survey features insight from security and IT professionals from around the world, and in many industries, with the healthcare sector representing 17 percent of all respondents.

Despite this lack of formal planning, 72 percent of organizations reported feeling more “cyber resilient” today than they were last year. Highly-resilient organizations (61 percent) attribute their confidence to their ability to hire skilled personnel—but organizations need both technology and people to be cyber resilient. In fact, 60 percent of respondents consider a lack of investment in AI and machine learning as the biggest barrier to cyber resilience.

This confidence may be misplaced, however, according to the researchers.
