Nearly half of organisations lack confidence to close security gaps
ackerOne , one of the world ’ s
H most trusted provider of ethical hacking solutions , has released The 2022 Attack Resistance Report that captures IT professionals ’ assessments of their cyberattack readiness . The report reveals organisations face a significant gap between what they are able to protect and what they need to protect – coined the attack resistance gap .
The report , compiled from survey responses from enterprise organisations
in North America and Europe , investigated four areas critical for organisations to increase their resistance to attack : an understanding of their attack surface ; the cadence of application testing compared to release cycles ; the depth and style of security testing and the availability of technical talent capable of carrying out these tasks . Overall , organisations had a confidence score of 63 % across a composite of these four areas .
“ Awareness reduces risk . Only organisations who know their attack resistance gap are equipped to reduce it ,” said Marten Mickos , CEO of HackerOne . “ We conducted this research to illustrate the problem and show the way toward improvement . Organisations that broaden their scope of testing , and do it continuously , are seeing their attack resistance gap shrink .”
