Global State of Information Security® Survey 2018: The Australian story

A broader spectrum of Australian organisations embrace cyber capabilities.

The global importance of cybersecurity awareness

As the world’s reliance on data and interconnectivity grows, all organisations are now concerned about the threat to the availability of Operational Technology (OT) networks and their increasing vulnerability from the Internet of Things (IoT).

In our latest report, 40% of global respondents cited the disruption of Operational Technology as the biggest potential consequence of a cyberattack, 39% cited the compromise of sensitive data, 32% harm to product quality, 29% damage to physical property, and 22% harm to human life. Clearly the threat is real and can be costly to not just individual businesses, but to the nation's economy.
