We found four areas Leaders approach differently from other companies, which are contributing to their cyber resilience.
#1 Leaders prioritize advanced technology investments. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Next-Generation Firewall (NGF) and Risk-Based Authentication (RBA), among other advanced technologies, go a long way toward fortifying cybersecurity in today’s partner-based business models. AI is the top technology investment by Leaders.
#2 Speed matters. Industrial equipment cybersecurity Leaders know speed matters, but they approach speed from multiple angles: detection speed, response time, and recovery/restoration speed. All three areas are crucial to not just cybersecurity, but also to cyber resilience over the longer term.
#3 Leaders scale more. It’s no coincidence that Leaders are 4X better defending against attacks—they scale security technologies significantly more than their peers. More than half of Leaders (51%) scale half or more of their security tools throughout the enterprise, which provides them with a much broader base of protection.
#4 Cybersecurity is a team sport. Leaders are more tapped in, not only to business partners but also to the industry security community.
