IDG polled 200 network and cybersecurity professionals across the U.S. & Canada, and found almost inevitable consequences for organizations where network and cybersecurity teams have conflicting objectives, are managed in a siloed way, and have unequal or incomplete network visibility.
86% of respondents admitted to experiencing at least one of the following due to a lack of close collaboration:
- Increase in security breaches and/or data loss
- Slow response to security events
- Finger pointing/blame game
- Loss of productivity
- Service downtime
- Inability to determine root cause of security events
- Cost increases.
“The findings of this research should mobilize organizations to address some of their most fundamental problems, like team structure, goals, communication, and collaboration,” comments IDG publisher Bob Bragdon.
