2019 Crowdstrike Global Security Attitude Survey reveals Australian business are slower to detect breaches than the rest of the world

A new global survey commissioned by CrowdStrike reveals that an overwhelming majority of organisations lack the rapid detection and response times needed to stop an intruder from accessing their networks and data. The survey is based on responses from 1,900 senior IT decision-makers and professionals from across the U.S., Canada, U.K., Mexico, Middle East, Australia, Germany, Japan, France, India and Singapore and from a wide range of industries.

Most alarmingly, the survey reveals that the time it takes Australian organisations to respond to a breach is slower than those of our overseas counterparts. Australian organisations take an average of 186 hours to respond, compared with the global average of 162 hours.

Positively, the report notes that businesses, especially in the APAC region, have increased their cybersecurity budgets, indicating that companies are starting to heed the unprecedented ferocious nature of cyber attacks.

Where do you stand?

Australia is certainly not immune to security breaches. As noted in our previous post, just this year, Big W, Hawthorn Football Club, Nova Entertainment, My Health Records, Victorian Public Servants, Dept of Parliamentary Services and Marriott Hotel Group (amongst others) have suffered breaches. And there was this breach on the Australian National University, which required no password stolen, no clicks, not even an email opened.

As organisations are re-assessing their security posture, many are moving to cloud solutions, giving them the speed, visibility and crowd-sourced protection needed to safeguard against today’s complex and sophisticated threats.
