Cybersecurity gaps exposed

Cybersecurity gaps exposed

August 15, 2019

A new survey commissioned by Canon U.S.A., Inc. revealed critical gaps in companies’ cybersecurity agendas.

While digital transformation helps companies work smarter, the ongoing digitisation unlocks a wealth of security vulnerabilities that can cost companies money, time, intellectual property, and customer trust.

Canon’s latest Office of the Future survey found that all organisations surveyed across a range of verticals experienced a cyber threat over the past year. Conducted by global technology market advisory firm ABI Research, the survey of more than one thousand US IT professionals revealed three, pertinent cybersecurity threats:

Malware and Ransomware: More than one-third of respondents consider malware and ransomware a first priority threat. Yet, 25 percent of respondents say that employees have limited to no security awareness, nor do they understand their role in prevention.

Compromised Devices: In today’s digital age, and with remote working trends on the rise, 21 percent of surveyed IT decision-makers rate compromised devices as a priority threat. Respondents then rank data security, network security, and user authentication and ID management as the top three most relevant technologies to help counteract this threat.

Social Engineering: The human factor is a persistent threat. In fact, survey respondents consider malicious insiders (30 percent) and human error (25 percent) to be the two top threat sources.

Survey results include additional gaps, such as lack of appropriate cybersecurity spend across certain verticals; however, it also indicates hope, with nearly 25 percent of those surveyed stating that they are looking to increase investments in the key growth area of cloud security in the future.
