The world of cybersecurity has evolved to the point where creating and maintaining a robust security posture is only the first step. The second step is about detection, and the third deals with response. Traditionally, cybersecurity investments have been directed at prevention, but as we become more sophisticated, and the market understands there is no bullet-proof prevention method, we’re seeing a shift towards the second and third phases – detection and response. Specifically, 68% of companies plan to enhance incident response capabilities in the next 12 months, and Gartner estimates by 2020, 60% of enterprise information security budgets will be allocated for rapid detection and response approaches – an increase from less than 30% in 2016.
The way in which we protect ourselves is changing, which begs the question, are you changing too?
