Despite the $124 billion that Gartner estimated organizations would spend fending off cyberthreats this year, the frequency and severity of incidents continues to grow. A report by Nominet found that the majority of chief information security officers (CISOs) lack the necessary resources to defend their organizations. And an informal survey of 22 industry executives, chief technology officers (CTOs), security analysts and independent security experts last year by SiliconAngle found unanimous agreement that the cybersecurity problem is getting worse.
Is there hope of turning the tide? Many experts say yes. New technologies such as machine learning are showing promise, information-sharing consortia are springing up to enable better collaboration and organizations are finally taking cyberthreats seriously enough to apply more discipline to using the tools they already have.
