Analyzing the Results of the 2021 Cybersecurity Complexity Study, EU & UK

Martin Cook, Sr. Solutions Engineer, Reliaquest Discusses How to Streamline Your Time to Response

Attacks such as the ones experienced by SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline show that adversaries are not only stealthy, persistent and patient, but they also are taking advantage of our complexity – the sheer number of disparate tools, vendors and over-burdened staff that enterprises have cobbled together for defence, leaving dangerous gaps in detection and response.

The 2021 Cybersecurity Complexity Study was conducted in the summer of 2021. Focused on EU & UK enterprises, the survey received more than 200 responses from organisations primarily in professional services (37%) and financial services (32%), but also in retail, utilities and manufacturing, mainly with enterprises employing 1,000-5,000 employees (67%).

In this exclusive interview, Martin Cook, Senior Solutions Engineer with ReliaQuest, discusses how to reduce complexity, increase visibility and tap into new resources to enhance your own abilities to detect, investigate and respond to attacks.

The next attack is only around the corner. It is far better to be prepared than to be surprised.
