Hikvision Discusses Network Security and Segmentation to Reduce Security Concerns


The 2019 Scalar Security Study surveyed more than 400 Canadian IT and security workers, and found that the average cost of security breach and cybersecurity incidents has increased and can cost organizations up to $5.8 million, according to an article in Canadian Security magazine.

“Canadian companies are still overconfident in their abilities to successfully defend against cybersecurity attacks. Many are now realizing the need to implement a cyber resiliency plan in order to better prepare, defend and respond to incidents. The rise in the percentage of successful breaches coincides with the shift in cybersecurity efforts from protection against attacks to improving detection of malicious attacks and responding to and recovering from incidents,” said Theo Van Wyk, chief technology officer for security at Scalar, in the article.

Survey results also included the following:

  • 18 percent reported data recovery was subject to ransomware demands
  • 11 percent of respondents had a high degree of confidence in the organization’s ability to prevent security breaches
  • It took an average of 19.4 days (up from 16.1 the prior year) to recover from security breaches
