Hikvision on Safeguards to Prevent Hacks, Vulnerabilities


Canadian Security magazine covered new research from IBM Security in the article, “Study reveals most organizations haven’t planned for latest threats.”

From the article: “IBM Security announced the results of a global report examining businesses’ effectiveness in preparing for and responding to cyberattacks. While organizations surveyed have slowly improved in their ability to plan for, detect and respond to cyberattacks over the past five years, their ability to contain an attack has declined by 13 percent during this same period.”

The study found these additional results:

  • 74 percent of respondents stated that its organization’s security response plan is not consistent or they do not have a plan in place.
  • However, the study found that more organizations have adopted a “formal, enterprise-wide security response plan” over the last five years, increasing by 44 percent since 2015.
  • Organizations that created a formal security response plan had less disruptions caused by a security incident, according to the research.
