Current Security Difficulties

According to a recent report on Security Analytics and Operations, sixty-three percent of survey respondents find cybersecurity analytics/operations more difficult today than they were two years ago. This increasing difficulty is prevalent across cybersecurity disciplines, impacting the ability of organizations to not only protect critical assets but also detect and respond to cyber-attacks in a timely fashion.

With more and more data coming in than ever, it is hard to process and secure data efficiently. Data attacks and security threats have also drastically increased – proving that now is the most crucial time to have a secure environment and plan. As attacks and threats evolve to be more complex and competent, so do the required solutions and methods to fight them.
