Moreover, with all the debate about offensive cybersecurity -- i.e., "hacking back" -- as well as the legal uncertainties surrounding it, even some of the more security-conscious firms could feel stifled.

Re: #4
Your idea goes two steps further. What I find most striking about #4 is that "40% have no incident response plans" -- that's at least 'surprising' to put it mildly. Still far too many organizations are unprepared and hit by surprise, if an incident occurs.

Re: #4
@Marc: It's striking but I'm not sure how surprising it is, depending upon what the proportion of small, medium, and large businesses is and what the industry split is.  For a large healthcare or life-sciences organization to not have an incident-response plan is practically unheard of.  For a small mom-and-pop retailer to not have an incident response plan is not at all surprising (despite the wisdom of the decision).

Re: #4
@Joe: Just look at the stats of the Radware report: "mom-and-pop shops" don't represent 40% of the survey respondents. Only 23% of the respondents are from organizations with <100 employees.

Re: #4
@Marc: Gotcha.

23% of all respondents or 23% of those 40%?  Because you'd want to correlate that and know how that split works.
