Divide Remains Between Cybersecurity Awareness and Skill

Organizations understand the need for critical data protection but may lack the resources to respond.

Cybersecurity expertise and execution are not evenly distributed, and that leaves organizations' critical data assets vulnerable, according to InteliSecure.

Its "2018 State of Critical Data Protection Report" is based on a survey of 318 executives and professionals in the US, Canada, and the UK. Among the findings: Three-quarters of board directors are holding C-suite executives accountable for critical data protection. And while most organizations say they see the value and importance of a cybersecurity governance group, finding individuals with the right expertise is far more difficult.

You wait and see..
It sounds like a huge catch-22 situation to me. If you're not willing to spend money on cyber security, then you're going to end up paying through your teeth to make sure that your company is safe when an attack does come. Better that you put in some money to get a little bit of protection now rather than later!
