November 21, 2018 / Trend Micro
Only 14% of respondents say they have complete organisational awareness of IOT threats. Thirty-seven percent claimed they are not always able to define their security needs before implementing IOT solutions. Fifty-nine percent of corporate IOT attacks target office devices. Trend Micro (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cyber security solutions, today revealed that 86% of surveyed IT and security decision-makers across the globe believe their organisation needs to improve its awareness of Internet of things (IOT) threats. This significant lack of knowledge accompanies rising threat levels and security challenges related to connected devices, which leaves organisations at great risk.The poll of 1 150 IT and security leaders1 reveals a worrying lack of cyber security maturity in many organisations around the world, as they deploy IOT projects to drive innovation, agility and digital transformation.
