We can see that cybersecurity is still top of mind for business leaders who are very aware of the scale of cyber risk to their organizations. Security good practice, however, has stagnated.

Key findings include:

  • 88 percent of organizations say cybersecurity has a big role to play in society
  • Progress on cybersecurity has stalled: the Risk:Value Index remains static at just +3
  • 36 percent of organizations reveal that they would rather pay a ransom to a hacker than be fined for failing to meet data protection regulations
  • The cost of a cybersecurity breach has increased in 2019 to 12.7% of annual revenue
