Following the Cyber Security Hub Mid-Year Report, we come together as a community to discuss and debate the latest findings. Board Members & Partners have an interactive conversation with you about how to secure the enterprise against the threat landscape we all face.

The conversation revolves around key takeaways from the Report:

A distinction between Approach & Strategy

There are potentially alarming responses to our global pandemic related questions in this mid-year survey. All respondents
completed the survey between May 17th and June 8th. Most migration to remote work happened in the last two weeks of
March. That means that all respondents were defending the enterprise with a remote workforce for at least six weeks when
they completed the survey. When asked “Has your approach to security changed as a result of the global pandemic and an increasingly remote workforce?” 39.89% said no.

A conversation about top-talent

With staff being reduced, a past potential innocent insider threat has emerged as a potential nefarious external threat.

Balancing the fact that budgets are flat or down

Over half of the cyber security community noted that budgets were increasing last year. And now midway through 2020, two thirds of the community see budgets flattened or decreasing. That’s a marked shift. In the wake of the global pandemic- only 38.42% expect an increase.

A bit of discussion on technology

While compliance priority has decreased 17% in the past year, the thinking is that the community is through with the initial major changes needed for GDPR. The 9% increase in SIEM focus shows that the community is further adopting automation tools. As a majority of cyber security budgets have not yet shifted in the face of a momentous societal occurrence, how money is spent becomes all the more important. Endpoint security went from the fifth highest to the second highest spend in the past six months.

Forward looking statements

We finish the webinar with panelists sharing their thoughts on what to expect as we make our way into the back half of H2 2020 and into the front half of 2021.
