One of the most talked about presentations at the CISO/CLO Summit was offered by Bryan Sartin of Verizon, who gave an in-depth review of the 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report (read more about the report on one of my earlier posts). And in the spirit of survey data, we asked Summit attendees to answer a few questions for us regarding their information security concerns and challenges. Here are some of the key findings:
- When asked what aspect of incident response presents the greatest challenge to them, CISO/CLO Summit attendees cited dealing with the high costs and overhead of the incident response process, and remediating advanced threats like zero days or polymorphic malware as their top two challenges.
- Attendees also identified unprotected or stolen customer information as their biggest worry when it comes to possible outcomes of a security breach – followed by damaging company reputation, at a distant second.
