The New Cyber-Pragmatism
Focusing on Breach Prevention Alone Is an Obsolete Strategy
Organizations know they can't keep all cyber attackers out. Gone are the days when enterprises spent more than three-fourths of their IT security budgets on preventive initiatives, according to Anderson Research. Instead, as cyberattacks continue to skyrocket, portfolio managers are prioritizing detection and response efforts, according to a 2017 Gartner report. Overall spending on cybersecurity projects will jump from US$90 billion in 2017 to US$113 billion by 2020, the research organization says.
