Cybersecurity pros think the enemy is winning

There is a saying in security that the bad guys are always one step ahead of defense. Two new sets of research reveal that the constant cat-and-a-mouse game is wearing on security professionals, and many feel they are losing in the war against cybercriminals.

The first figures are from the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and industry analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). The two polled cybersecurity professionals and found 94 percent of respondents believe that cyber adversaries have a big advantage over cyber defenders—and the balance of power is with the enemy. Most think that advantage will eventually pay off for criminals, as 91 percent believe that most organizations are extremely vulnerable, or somewhat vulnerable, to a significant cyberattack or data breach.
