According to new research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, Australia and New Zealand have the highest levels of data breaches out of the nine countries investigated. This was linked to heavy investment in security detection and an under‑investment in security and vulnerability response capabilities. Interestingly enough, it was discovered that 57% of breach victims were breached due to a vulnerability for which a patch was available and 48 percent of respondents had one or more data breaches in the last 2 years.
As businesses revisit their security practices and governance procedures, improving visibility and early detection over their infrastructure will be crucial. Meeting those requirements requires a flexible, effective framework for managing security and governance activities – but many companies struggle to introduce one.
