Deloitte Tech Trends Poll: You've Been Hacked, Now What?

More than one in four respondents report their organizations were the victims of at least one cyberattack

NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than one in four (28 percent) of respondents surveyed report their organizations were the victims of at least one cyberattack in the past year; nine percent report multiple breaches, and an alarming 17 percent were not confident that their organizations could even detect an attack, according to a Deloitte Tech Trends poll of 1,749 business professionals.

"It's no longer a discussion about if an organization will get hacked, but only a matter of when, and how quickly and effectively it will respond," said Mark White, principal and chief technology officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP.  "Organizations across many industries need to change the lens through which they view cyber risk – not only relying on traditional security controls to reveal tell-tale signs of an effective attack – but by considering transforming the way they defend, detect and even manage security by leveraging cyber intelligence and advanced techniques to help identify the coming threat and proactively respond."

Additional findings from the poll include:

  • Response times to identify and address breaches vary, with plenty of room for improvement.  Almost half (48 percent) of respondents polled said their organizations identified and triaged threats within hours, while approximately one in five (21 percent) reported their organizations did so within a week, and nearly one in 10 (9 percent) said it took more than a week.
  • People, process and technology are ALL critical to cyber threat programs.  Respondents said the following concerned their organizations the most regarding their cyber threat programs: infrastructure and technology (28 percent); right talent/right skills (26 percent); effective operational processes (24 percent) and adequate resourcing/funding (22 percent).
  • Consumer/personal information is highly valued by cyber criminals and organizations invest heavily trying to protect it.  Respondents put a high price tag on consumer/personal information, with approximately half (49 percent) reporting that this type of data would be of most value to cyber-criminals, followed by intellectual property (27 percent); corporate strategy information (13 percent) and financial performance information (11 percent).  Consistent with this data, more than half (55 percent) of respondents said their organizations most heavily invested in protecting consumer/personal information, followed by intellectual property (23 percent).

"Cyber security may sound technical in nature, but at its core it is a business issue. Any company's competitive position and financial health may be at stake. Business and technology leaders need to engage in effective dialog about what the business values most, how the company can drive a competitive advantage, and which information and other digital assets are the most sensitive. Brand, customer trust and strategic positioning may be at risk," said Kieran Norton, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP and leader of Deloitte's U.S. cyber threat management practice. "There may be no such thing as hacker-proof, but there's a chance to reduce your cyber beacon, be less inviting to attack, and proactively establish outward- and inward-facing measures around your most valued assets."

Based on the Feb. 7 Deloitte Dbriefs webcast "If You Build It, They Will Come – And Try to Hack It," the results of the poll underscore the increasing importance of cyber intelligence highlighted in the "No Such Thing as Hacker-proof " chapter in Deloitte's 4th Annual Tech Trends Report, "Elements of postdigital." The chapter is co-authored by Kieran Norton and Kelly Bissell, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP and leader of Deloitte's information & technology risk management and global incident response practices.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected.

Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
