Key Security Challenges and Tooling Approaches for 2024: Survey Results Analysis

Executive Insight by Zeki Turedi, CTO EMEA, CrowdStrike

In Q4 2024, Information Security Media Group (ISMG) conducted a global survey of over 350 senior cybersecurity professionals who provided anonymous insights into industry trends and concerns around security tooling in 2024, and opportunity for practitioners to benchmark their organisation against best practice in the field.

The survey highlights leading cybersecurity tooling challenges, including the increasing threat posed by the introduction of generative AI, which is cited by 32% of respondents. On the priority list, however, this new threat ranks behind the need to strengthen cloud security, cited by 48%, and the ongoing leading concern: the critical importance of identity and access security, cited by 52%.

Additionally, respondents consistently cite challenges related to visibility of what's happening on their network and who or what is accessing their data and for what purpose.

Zeki Turedi, CTO for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, CrowdStrike, offers executive analysis on these findings and more in this videocast interview, available now. He discusses the need to move away from organisations buying specific-functionality tools, the differences between how we identify vulnerabilities, including the large increase identity-based hacks, the deeper understanding how AI has been used by the threat actors in targeting customers and organisations, and how to protect against such threats.
