97% of Indian organisations find the execution of some essential security operation tasks as threat-hunting and challenging
Sophos, a cybersecurity firm in a new survey report, “The State of Cybersecurity 2023: The Business Impact of Adversaries on Defenders,” found that 97% of Indian organisations find the execution of some essential security operation tasks, such as threat-hunting, challenging.
These challenges also include understanding how an attack happened, with 88% of respondents stating they have challenges identifying the root cause of an incident. This can make proper remediation difficult, leaving organisations vulnerable to repetitive and/or multiple attacks, by the same or different adversaries, especially since 82% of those surveyed reported challenges with timely remediation.
In addition, 84% said they have challenges understanding which signals/alerts to investigate, and 83% reported challenges prioritising investigations. Further, 45% of organisations surveyed said that cyber threats are now too advanced for their organisation to deal with on their own and 95% said they are working with external specialists to scale their operations, as per reported by YourStory.
