What’s keeping CISOs awake at night in 2022? That’s the question we asked CISOs at the start of the CISO Peer Survey in the first week of April. 2021 was a stressful year for CISOs and we wanted to learn from them about how they are getting ready for the uncertain times that lay ahead with geopolitical conflicts and the threat of a recession shaping the narrative. The CISO Peer Survey was an attempt to amplify the voice of the CISO, document their opinions, challenges, and ideas, and share them with decision-makers and enterprises in general.
CISOs responded to the call with plenty of enthusiasm. Within less than a month, we got 300 responses and not even a single question was left unanswered.
The CISO survey has captured responses around these topics:
- The top security priorities for budgetary intervention
- The number of times their enterprises have been attacked in the last 360 days
- Strategies deployed for protecting data and IP
- Degree of SecOps automation
- CISOs assessment of their preparedness to deal with the rise in cyber threats and risk exposure
- Their biggest challenge
- Level of confidence in their existing security tools, frameworks, and approaches to deal with emerging threats
- Key drivers for procurement of cybersecurity tools
- Impact of Covid-19 on business security plans
- Level of leadership security awareness
- Skill up-gradation schedules
- Institutional cybersecurity priorities
- Key learnings from past cybersecurity incidents
- Specific strategies to deal with insider threats
- Strategies and tactics to augment legacy system security for OT infrastructure
- Incident response and threat intelligence utilization strategies
- And much more
The Sectrio CISO Peer Survey 2022 has become the most comprehensive and detailed survey of the security landscape across industries. Not only has the survey brought out many aspects of the security management strategies and tactics adopted by organizations, but it has also outlined CISO apprehensions as well as key intervention areas from a tool, skillset, budget and senior leadership awareness perspective.
The survey report will offer CISOs insights into how their peers are managing their security requirements. CISOs can also use this report to build a case for enhancing OT and IoT security investments, adding more sources of threat intelligence, dealing with insider threats, and securing vulnerabilities.
The CISO survey will be kept open till this Friday (May the 27th) and will be closed for responses after that. We will begin compiling the survey report from midnight GMT, May the 28th. All results will be published as-is and Sectrio will not be modifying any part of the responses. We will also be announcing the 3 winners of the survey contest shortly.
All survey participants will get a copy of the report emailed to them well before the official release.
All of us at team Sectrio are thankful to all CISOs and cybersecurity leaders who participated in this survey and shared their inputs. We can’t wait to share the final report with you to hear your thoughts on the findings.
