TRENDING or not at all aligned when it came to defending their organizations
“ It ’ s clear from this research that cyberattacks continue to produce large impacts against global organizations and the effects are compounding ,” said Steven Stone , Head of Rubrik Zero Labs .
“ In addition to this rise in frequency and impacts of cyber-events , the individuals on the front lines are taking a psychological hit on their well-being . Trust is down and anxiety is up . Without a proactive and reliable approach to defend against modern cyberthreats and strengthen confidence in an organization ’ s ability to resolve these cyberevents , these impacts – both human and organizational – will continue to worsen and feed each other . The good news is we ’ re also seeing pragmatic , proven strategies in this same space paying off and we can build off these approaches .”

Chris Krebs , Former Director of CISA and Founding Partner of the Krebs Stamos Group , added : “ We often overlook the psychological dimension of cyberattacks and the chaos that tends to follow after discovering an incident . The bad guys sure have figured it out , though , with criminals and state actors alike trying to generate emotional responses when they attack , as evidenced by the increase in criminal extortion efforts and hack and leak campaigns .
“ In the end , IT and security leaders alike tend to take the blame for these cyberattacks . One of the most effective techniques I ’ ve seen to prepare for these types of attacks is to accept you ’ re going to have a bad day at some point and your job is to ensure that it doesn ’ t become a ‘ worse day .’ This is why we need defenders across the spectrum to come together – sharing best practices , learnings after attacks , simulations and frameworks – so that we ’ re collectively strengthening our defenses and minimizing the psychological impact brought on by an attack .”
The State of Data Security comes from Rubrik Zero Labs , the company ’ s new cybersecurity research unit formed to analyze the global threat landscape , report on emerging data security issues and give organizations research-backed insights and best practices to secure their data against increasing cyber-events . p
