The survey of over 1,000 security leaders reveals that organizations are committed to a stronger risk-based security posture but ineffective security metrics, operational inefficiencies, and the lack of full visibility are major roadblocks. Among the findings:

  • Priorities: Secure cloud migration (57%), Implement Zero Trust principles (48%)
  • Metrics: Unable to measure meaningful progress against risk-oriented programs (64%)
  • Visibility: Lack thereof across cloud and on-premises sources is making threat detection ineffective (60%)
  • Inefficiencies: Too much time spent on manual data collection activities (52%)
