                Balancing Security Investments: The Challenge of the Modern UK Enterprise

                In the age of cloud, enterprises must work to maximise the return on their cybersecurity investment and strengthen the power of their security posture

                Your organisation’s security posture may not be as mature as you think.

                The use of cloud has increasingly allowed large UK enterprises to focus on core organisational revenue goals, yet it poses significant security challenges. This paper from Frost & Sullivan, commissioned by SecureWorks and based on a survey of 201 Information Security leaders from large UK enterprises, shows that, despite general satisfaction about their security strategy, few organisations pay adequate attention to cloud security issues. Most still have much work to do to achieve an appropriate security posture to meet cloud security concerns and achieve cyber resiliency.

                52% of UK enterprises claim that their high security is a differentiator, but only 16% have a mature cloud strategy.

                The consequences of this inadequate protection are made even more serious by the widening scope of regulation, especially GDPR. Creating and implementing a cloud security strategy must become an immediate priority.

                Most large UK enterprises have solid baseline security capabilities. Yet they are hampered in achieving a mature security posture by the complexity of today’s advanced threat landscape and by the Europe-wide shortage of cybersecurity professionals.

                Few large enterprises can excel at their core business and at security, but a stringent security approach following best practice is vital for achieving and demonstrating compliance, retaining customers and achieving a consistently forward leaning security posture that meets the challenge of cloud security. Indeed, with the move to cloud making security ever more complex, this paper shows that it’s vital to maximise the effectiveness of your company’s existing security infrastructure and ensure that you achieve the highest possible return on your security investment.
