Taking the Pulse of IT Security for 2019: Results from Syncsort's Security Survey

An In-Depth Review of Results from Syncsort's 2019 IT Security Survey

In 2018 we saw multiple security regulations become effective – most notably the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As a result, businesses already grappling with increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity attacks now must contend with additional regulatory requirements.

To check the pulse of IT teams managing security, Syncsort surveyed over 300 IT professionals on the state of security in their organization – and it's not surprising that the "growing complexity of regulations" was ranked as the #1 security challenge for 42% of the respondents in the year ahead.

Concerningly, 45% of the respondents reported that their organization had experienced a security breach in 2018 and the confidence reported by respondents did not align with their ability to prevent breaches and meet Service Level Agreements.

Hear from Syncsort's security experts to learn what the survey revealed about:

  • Security priorities and challenges for 2019
  • Reported breaches and whether survey respondents met their breach response metrics
  • Initiatives for strengthening security and achieving compliance in 2019
