Hikvision Cybersecurity Blog Series Offers Tips to Avoid Malware, Phishing


A Kaspersky Lab study of 250 IT decision makers found that 84 percent of North American CISOs believe security breaches are unavoidable, according to an article in Security magazine.

The report also found that criminal gangs and malicious insider attacks are believed to be the top two threats to business security, according to the CISOs who participated in the study.

CISOs expect their IT budgets to increase, yet more than a third found it difficult to secure their requested funding. From the article, “Many CISOs, whose cybersecurity budget is wrapped into overall IT spend, are seeing their security funding prioritized for digital, cloud or other IT projects with clearer ROI potential.”

Andrey Pozhogin, cybersecurity expert at Kaspersky Lab, said this in the article: “There is an opportunity for CISOs to increase their influence and leadership within an organization, and ensure their views are aligned with those of the executive team. Working with different lines of business on various projects can help them be seen as more of an authority figure. Increased normal interaction between IT security and the different lines of business can strengthen collaboration and prove their need to be involved in strategic decisions.”
