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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
