Global Cisco Study Unveils Five Data-Driven Security Practices That Actually Work
News Summary: 
• Security teams with modern, cloud-based IT are more likely to maintain pace of business, as it’s twice as likely their technology is kept up to date
• Integrated technology with high levels of automation can help organizations overcome challenges with the global labor and skills shortage 
• The Asia Pacific, Japan and China (APJC) region leads in both zero trust and secure access service edge (SASE) adoption globally
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 08, 2021 — Cisco has released its latest cybersecurity report, Security Outcomes Study Volume 2, surveying more than 5100 security and privacy professionals across 27 countries to determine the most impactful measures teams can take to defend their organizations against the evolving threat landscape. Respondents shared their approaches to updating and integrating their security architecture, detecting and responding to threats and staying resilient when disaster strikes. 
 
Last year’s study revealed that five practices had an outsized influence on the overall health of an organization’s security program. These include proactively refreshing outdated technology, well-integrated security technologies, timely incident response, prompt disaster recovery, and investing in accurate threat detection capabilities. This year’s study analyzed those top five practices more closely to identify success factors. Highlights of these findings include:
 
Updating and Integrating Architecture
• Investing in a proactive technology refresh strategy is more critical than ever, as on average 39% of security technologies used by organizations globally are considered outdated. In Saudi Arabia, this average is 31%, while in the United Kingdom, it reaches as high as 56% - illustrating clear need for a departure from legacy infrastructure. 
• Unsurprisingly, organizations with cloud-based architectures are more than twice as likely to refresh than those with more outdated, on-premises technologies. 
• Organizations with integrated technologies are seven times more likely to achieve high levels of process automation. Additionally, these organizations boast more than 40% stronger threat detection capabilities.
• More than 75% of security operations programs that do not have strong staffing resources are still able to achieve robust capabilities through high levels of automation. Automation more than doubles the performance of less experienced staff, supporting organizations through skills and labor shortages. 
 
 
Detecting and Responding to Threats
• The value of cloud-based security architectures cannot be understated. Organizations that claim to have mature implementations of Zero Trust or Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architectures are 35% more likely to report strong security operations than those with nascent implementations.
• Respondents in a number of markets show high intent to expand their cloud-based security technology: Saudi Arabia (80%), the United Kingdom (74%), Russia (73%). 
• Organizations that leverage threat intelligence achieve faster mean time to repair (MTTR), with rates 50% lower than those of non-intel users. 
 
Staying Resilient when Disaster Strikes
• As the threat landscape continues to evolve, testing business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities regularly and in multiple ways is more critical than ever, with proactive organizations 2.5 times more likely to maintain business resiliency.
• Organizations with board-level oversight of business continuity and disaster recovery efforts that have operations residing within cybersecurity teams perform best. 
 
'With the shift to hybrid work in the Middle East and beyond, organizations are grappling with the increased complexity of securing a distributed workforce. At the same time, they are also dealing with limited staff and budget constraints, so it’s critical for organizations to invest in innovative technologies and security practices,” said Fady Younes, Cybersecurity Director at Cisco Middle East and Africa. “Cisco’s 2022 Security Outcomes Study takes the guesswork out of prioritizing security strategies and technologies. By investing in cloud-based, integrated security architectures with high automation, practitioners can respond to threats faster, so they can focus on enabling the business and keeping users safe.”
