We surveyed 2,000 executives from 12 industries and 15 countries across North and South America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The objective was to understand the extent to which companies prioritize security, how comprehensive security plans are, how resilient companies are with regard to security, and the level of spend for security.
The survey aimed to measure performance across 33 cybersecurity capabilities classified into seven cybersecurity domains: business alignment, cyber response readiness, strategic threat intelligence, cyber resilience, investment efficiency, governance and leadership, and the extended ecosystem. More than 60% of respondents were senior security executives at director level and above with responsibility for cybersecurity strategy and spending at companies with revenues of US$1 billion or more.
