Learn the results of a new Centrify research study with Dow Jones Customer Intelligence, “CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity,” which reveals that a misalignment between CEOs and Technical Officers is weakening enterprise cybersecurity postures.
The study – a survey of 800 enterprise executives including CEOs, Technical Officers, and CFOs – highlights that:
• 62 percent of CEOs cite malware as the primary threat to cybersecurity, compared with only 35 percent of Technical Officers.
• Only 8 percent of all executives stated that anti-malware endpoint security would have prevented the “significant breaches with serious consequences” that they experienced.
• 68 percent of executives whose companies experienced significant breaches indicate it would most likely have been prevented by either privileged user identity and access management or user identity assurance.
