Effectiveness of Technologies
After looking at the survey, specifically the list of "Effectiveness of Technologies in Protecting Data", I wouldn't say the results are surprising - passwords at 19% and AV at 30% is actually pretty good reflection of reality. But firewalls at 62% is kind of ruining that. With today's attack techniques, most hackers that successfully penetrate an organization wouldn't even know a firewall was there.

Inevitable
Endpoint ( mobile, IoT ) proliferation for monitoring and controls is going exacerbate the resources issue well into the future. Lines of business wants more speed and efficiency but the constraints on security teams severely limit the demand from the business. Tell your kids to get computer science and cyber related degrees.

Already
Cyberattacks on US infrastructure have almost certainly happened already. Researchers have previously been able to demonstrate proofs of concept if not actually compromise dams and other critical infrastructure.

This goes extra if we count voting as infrastructure, given how notoriously unsecure voting machines and online voting are.
