Introducing Money, Minds and the Masses: A Study of Cybersecurity Resource Limitations

If it feels like cybersecurity is getting more difficult to perform with each passing year, you are not imagining.

Threats are advancing in sophistication, hackers are getting smarter, more attack surface is needing coverage thanks to cloud and other connected devices, more data is accessible by both external adversaries and trusted insiders, and resource demands are continuing to outpace supply.

But it is that final factor - best manifested by the well-documented and worsening security skills shortage facing organizations worldwide - which may be the most to blame. Given this somber reality, that organizations are most at the mercy by something that seems so insurmountable at the moment, we wanted to more closely scrutinize this vexatious trend to help you better understand the current situation and use fresh data to make decisions on how to more effectively and immediately respond.

Conducted by Osterman Research, our 17-page survey report "Money, Minds and the Masses: A Study of Cybersecurity Resource Limitations" polled nearly 150 IT security decision makers on topics related to budget, proficiency and personnel.
