CIOs Accept Breaches are Inevitable

CIOs are investing more in security as they accept that data breaches are inevitable.

Most organizations say their information security functions don't fully meet their needs, and most are maintaining or increasing their IT security spending in order to protect against growing threats, according to an Ernst and Young study -- 83% of organizations say their security is inadequate, and 93% will maintain or increase IT security investments.

"...the number of security breaches is on the rise, and it is no longer a question of if, but when, a company will be the target of an attack ." - Ernst and Young study
The study found a major mindset change in IT security executives. CIOs are accepting the reality that their organizations will sustain breaches. Therefore, rather than only focusing on prevention, there is a growing focus on early detection. For proactive detection of data breaches by insiders, or those posing as insiders, organizations can utilize low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics services.
