Are you interested in strengthening your cybersecurity strategy?

CyberEdge provides a comprehensive view of IT security across industry verticals and geographical regions each year in its Cyberthreat Defense Report (CDR). Based on input from 1,200 IT security professionals in 17 countries and 19 industries, the 2024 CDR provides keen insights into how artificial intelligence (AI) impacts the cybersecurity industry and how enterprises leverage IT security training to improve job satisfaction. It also spotlights the growing inclusion of cybersecurity experts on boards of directors. Further, the report reveals which cybersecurity technologies are in the highest demand. 

Key insights from this year’s report are:  
  • IT security teams have the upper hand with AI… for now. Artificial intelligence is both a blessing and a curse for IT security teams. 
    • 97% of security professionals surveyed agree that AI will benefit security teams
    • 96% also believe AI will benefit threat actors. 
    • 50% more respondents say AI will give security teams more advantage than those who believe threat actors will benefit more.
  • Security professionals feel cautiously optimistic. Several findings in this year’s CDR show that IT security leaders are cautiously optimistic. 
    • The percentage of organizations victimized by a successful cyberattack declined for the third consecutive year. 
    • The percentage of organizations victimized by a successful ransomware attack fell for the first time in CDR history. 
    • Nearly 9 in 10 IT security operating budgets are rising rapidly.
    • The percentage of security professionals who believe that a successful cyberattack is more likely than not in the coming year declined significantly.
