5 Cybersecurity Lessons From The CISOs Of Smaller Enterprises Survey

Share post:

There are five lessons that any organization must learn from the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) survey of small cybersecurity teams. This include the position that remote work has accelerated the deployment of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technologies.

Others include the fact that 90% of CISOs now use a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution, overlapping threat protection tools are the number one pain point for small teams, small security teams ignore more warnings, and 96% of CISOs plan to consolidate security platforms.

The answers were given by CISOs of small and medium-sized enterprises when they were asked to share their challenges and priorities in the field of cybersecurity.

In the case of remote work, which accelerates the deployment of EDR technologies, 85% of CISOs rely on EDR tools, compared to only 52% in 2021.

Compared to 2021, twice as many CISOs and their organizations see the value of Extended Detection and Response (XDR) tools likely due to the increase in remote work. XDR tools combine EDR tools with integrated network signals.

In 2022, 90% of CISOs are using a MDR service, while only 21% are using a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP). This represents a leap in the use of MDR solutions compared to 2021, when 47% of CISOs relied on MSSP and 53% on MDR.

87% of companies with small security teams have difficulty managing and operating their threat protection products. 44% of these companies have overlapping capabilities, while 42% have difficulty visualising the full picture of an attack when it occurs.
