New Infographic: The State of Enterprise Cybersecurity

By Sarah Jones | Posted on December 22, 2022

Does it feel as if protecting your organization’s technologies and data from the attack has become more challenging than ever? 

If that’s the case, you’re not alone. Across the globe, enterprise security teams are feeling the strain as threats continue to multiply.

In July 2022, we partnered with Dark Reading to take a deep look at the issues cybersecurity and IT professionals were most worried about. A survey that included respondents located in North America and working for companies with 500 or more employees revealed their current concerns and what organizations are doing right now to protect themselves.


For example, our findings included the hiring challenges organizations are currently facing as they make specific moves to protect their technologies and data. The three skills respondents found it most difficult to hire for include:

  • Cloud security
  • Security architect skills
  • Offensive security skills
Organizations in general are extremely aware of the need to act on their security concerns. Ransomware and extortion are one of their top concerns when it comes to cyber attacks, but they struggle to find the vulnerabilities in their systems that could help prevent these attacks. Hiring challenges only make this process more difficult.

Securing technologies and data is of vital importance and should be a priority for every organization. For a summary of our survey findings, we recommend taking a moment to check out our recent infographic.
