Cybersecurity Breaches Hit Nearly Three in Four Organizations, New CompTIA Research Reveals

Almost three out of four organizations were experiencing at least one security breach or incident in the last year, with about 60 percent of violations classified as serious, according to a new report released today by CompTIA, the non-profit association benefit of the technology industry.

comptia

The report International trends in cyber security also reveals that organizations are changing policies and practices due to the increased use of mobile technology solutions and cloud computing security.

More than 1,500 business and technology executives in 12 countries were interviewed. The report includes data from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the United Kingdom (UK).

“The importance of knowledge of cyber security and the provision continues to grow regardless of geography,” said Amy Carrado, director of research and market knowledge, CompTIA. “Our study found that 79 percent of companies that provide cyber security will become a higher priority in the next two years. ”

In all countries surveyed, 73 percent of organizations reported experiencing at least one security breach or incident in the last 12 months. Self-reported security breaches were more common in India (94 percent), Malaysia (89 percent), Brazil (87 percent), Mexico (87 percent) and Thailand (82 percent). Organizations in Japan (39 percent) and the UAE (40 percent), the subjective perception of the lowest percentages of cyber security incidents.

The percentage of security incidents related to mobile – as lost devices, mobile malware and phishing personal attacks or disable security features – was even higher: 76 percent in all 12 countries. mobile self-reported incidents in the highest percentages in Thailand (95 percent), India (92 percent) and Mexico (89 percent); and the lowest percentages in Japan (60 percent), the UAE (60 percent) and the UK (64 percent).

In 10 of 12 countries, changes in IT operations, either because of a greater reliance on mobile technology, the use of some other factor in cloud solutions or were listed as the best driver to change approaches to cybersecurity.

Organizations are taking steps to assess and improve the cyber security awareness among employees. These practices include orientation for new employees, training programs, online courses and random security audits.

However, so far the results have been mixed. Only 23 percent of organizations to assess their methods of education and training of cyber security as extremely effective. Make training mandatory staff, more training and more often delivered to combine training with tests and follow-up assessments are some measures that could improve the efficiency, the leaders said.

Almost all managers feel it is important to test after the training of cybersecurity to confirm knowledge gains (96 percent). Eight out of 10 indicate that professional certifications for IT workers are useful or very useful as a way to validate the knowledge and skills related to cybersecurity.

Wait For The Channel Future

The global industry has experienced phenomenal 2015, with the end of the projection worldwide IDC year topping $ 3.7 trillion, representing $ 1 trillion. You want even better news? The latest edition of Outlook CompTIA IT Industry 2016 forecasts strong global growth trends continue, with another increase of 5 percent this year, pushing the global market of about $ 3.9 billion.

With a total IT spending all the time great confidence and the business is growing, industry projections seem quite positive. And there are many reasons to be optimistic about the canal side as well – at least for those who take business decisions and good investments.

In 2016, the US experience a number of important changes, including the selection of our next president. We also expect that a number of transitions in the channel. While the future is bright for those who position themselves as consultants and business partners about their customers, there are challenges ahead. Suppliers must be able to articulate the relevance of technology business and be prepared to offer, and earnings results are quantifiable. Members must know the details of the business from existing customers and be able to analyze overall performance. This is an excellent place to start.

Providers must also have relationships with managers and business line work, along with IT services, when there, to better understand the needs and goals of these organizations. A more proactive against the reactive or responsive relationship is the goal, with partners recommend solutions to its customers will need in the future to remain competitive.

Chain professionals today must focus on improving processes to their customers and help them develop critical business policies rather than simply recommending products or parts of their IT strategy. The game has certainly changed.

The challenge is that most partners are not comfortable taking the role of “business consulting”. Some have increased their level of personal trust with training and support, either through CompTIA or programs developed by its suppliers and distribution partners.

Other skilled professionals hired to add specializations or to improve your overall experience. With technology becomes crucial for business, they are asked more and more providers to research new products and technologies for its customers, seeking solutions that could make a demonstrative difference in the future. large volumes of data, mobility services and safety equipment all connections offer a number of advantages for end users, and solid business model for providers.

Now you have to ask yourself: Is my company ready, willing and able to assume these new responsibilities? We can offer customers support service and high level?

An example: computer security has become No. 1 job for VAR and MSP today. Beyond the application firewall and antivirus protection, partners who provide insight and training to minimize customer problems are gaining new customers. By taking advantage of the safety assessment and Assistant CyberSecure with customers, business customers position themselves as first line of defense.

I am very optimistic about the future of the channel. Innovation is everywhere, and businesses need trusted advisors to guide the design and implementation. As savvy end users today need help wading through the applications, infrastructure changes and additions, not to mention training. technological advances and complexity are good for the channel, but suppliers must be current and evolve with market needs.

Break and fix the product resale are not dead. It is still solid choice for some providers, but should be on the lookout for new competitors and the decrease in the margin continued to maintain that profitable business. Ultimately, VARs and MSPs simply have to be relevant to their current and potential customers. As the technology becomes more relevant to companies in a fast-paced environment, the partner will be more relevant as well.

For those who understand the business needs of its customers and provide appropriate solutions and support, the future is much brighter. Faced with this challenge?

I encourage you to participate with CompTIA and its members and our industry partners to make 2016 a very successful year. Based on all the research and knowledge, the future looks very bright chain. With so many ingenious people, an innovative and progressive so hard to advance our industry work, there is no doubt that this will be a great year.

The Violation Of Employee Data of The Human Heart Problem Snapchat

CompTIA-e1427160923367

About 700 current or former employees had information, including names, Social Security numbers and salary data compromised in the attack, according to the Los Angeles Times. Snapchat refused to confirm those details to The Washington Post or further comment beyond the blog.

[Talent Matters: As for the confidentiality of the data, do not underestimate the danger from within]

The incident highlights one of the biggest challenges for companies struggling to protect sensitive information: Even if your technique is security, your people can disappoint.

It is no secret that people make bad security decisions. Just look ridiculously bad passwords such as “123456” and “password” that appears on keeping data troves violated. However, companies are, of course, made up of people – people who can do the same kind of errors in the work they do in their personal digital life.

In fact, the “human element” was the cause of more than half of security breaches in 2015, according to a technology trade association CompTIA. However, the same report, based on surveys of hundreds of business leaders and US professional technology, suggests that companies may not be doing enough to prepare their workers for a new world scam could be in your inbox all the days.

[These are the worst passwords of 2015]

Despite the magnitude of the problem, only 30 percent of the rated “human factor” as a serious concern companies – and only 54 percent offered some training on cybersecurity, usually as part of the new address employee or a course annual update, according to the report.

For Snapchat is a good reason why it is important for businesses to think about their people as a key element keep your data safe. Just ask the social network, now working with the FBI to investigate the violation of the data and employees to provide two years of protection against identity theft for those affected.

“When something like this happens, all you can do is keep your mistake, take care of those affected, and learn from what went wrong,” the company said in the blog. “By doing well on this last point, we will redouble our rigorous training programs and on privacy and security in the coming weeks”.

Snapchat he had security problems in the past. There a few years, an error has left the user names and phone numbers of users exposed – and a group exploited to disclose information about 4.6 million account, apparently to highlight practical security company lax. But the last violation refers only to current and former employees, according to the blog.
