Only a third of CIOs cite cyber-risk mitigation as a performance measure

hile 94 % of CIOs acknowledge

W some form of serious threat over the next 12 months , only 27 % list Business Continuity and resilience as a top-three priority during the next 12 months and barely a third cite risk mitigation as a measure of performance . These findings come from the fourth and concluding section of the 2021 Global CIO Survey from Logicalis , a global provider of IT solutions .

The study which surveyed 1,000 CIOs from around the world , finds that nearly half of respondents ( 47 %) see data breaches as the biggest risk to their organisation ( an increase of 6 % from last year ). Following data breaches , CIOs state malware and ransomware ( 39 %) as other key areas of concern .
The perceived risk of a data breach is likely to have risen due to the increase in borderless workforces as employees continue to work from home or adopt hybrid working practices . When they occur , data breaches can lead to a range of issues from loss of businesscritical data and stalled business growth and in the most serious cases : the complete shutdown of a business .
Less than a third of CIOs ( 30 %) cite lack of staff awareness as a security issue , down from 50 % last year . This perceived improvement in staff awareness is due in part to an emphasised investment in additional training and technology measures to mitigate security risks .

Technologies , a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally , supported the recent Rakia Israeli space mission by hosting the communication to the specialised control centre , located at its headquarters in Tel Aviv where it also accommodated a visitor centre .
On April 8 , Israeli astronaut Eytan Stibbe took off from Cape Canaveral , Florida on a mission to the International Space Station ( ISS ). While there , he conducted 35 experiments , ranging from research in food and agriculture , medical testing , the impact of microgravity on plastic degradation , to experiments with transient luminous events and more .
and enable them to make necessary changes to experiments in real-time , while conducting a direct dialogue with the control room of the ISS in the United States .
The mission enabled Israeli entrepreneurs and researchers to advance innovative ideas and provided a rare opportunity for them to test their enterprises in a
unique study environment , thereby contributing to international and Israeli research industries .
The visitor centre , hosted by Check Point , made the Rakia Mission Centre accessible to thousands of students , allowing them to experience the human journey into space through interactive elements and inspiring educational activities .

As part of the undertaking , a unique Rakia Mission Centre was built at the Check Point Software offices in Tel Aviv . This included a control room from which scientists , artists and educators could monitor the activities of Eytan Stibbe
