Rubrik Zero Labs research reveals effects on leadership after cyberattacks

IT and security leaders must address , on average , one cyberattack per week according to a new study released by Rubrik Zero Labs , titled The State of Data Security .

Rubrik , a Zero Trust data security company , gathered insights from more than 1,600 security and IT leaders including CISOs , CIOs , VPs and directors across 10 countries . The findings exposed rising security risks for organizations , resulting in widespread damage to organizations and their IT and security teams .
Steven Stone , Head of Rubrik Zero Labs , said : “ It ’ s clear from this research that cyberattacks continue to produce large impacts against global organizations and the effects are compounding . In addition to this rise in frequency and impacts of cyberevents , 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 .”
