The far majority of cybersecurity professionals believe the most effective approach to reducing the cost of an attack is by adopting a preventative model. However, the perceived difficulty in achieving a thorough and efficient preventative model leads many to still take a focus on developing their containment measures which are considered better to enable accountability. This Economic Value of Prevention report, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Deep Instinct, analyzes the cost savings that can be taken in an efficient, zero-time prevention model.
Results were sourced from over 600 IT and IT security practitioners who are knowledgeable about their organizations’ cybersecurity technologies and processes. Most of these respondents are responsible for maintaining and implementing security technologies, conducting assessments, leading security teams, and testing controls.
Read the report to discover the major factors that impact an efficient cybersecurity posture, and the value of a preventative model to help organizations optimize their security budgets while building their resilience.
