"Length Of Time To Resolve Attacks" Is Top Concern For Cybersecurity Professionals

Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, today released the results of a survey conducted during the 13th annual Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC), hosted by Guidance Software in May. With respondents representing more than 150 organizations participating in the survey, the results indicate shifting priorities in enterprise and government security teams, with “length of time to resolve attacks” coming in as the chief cybersecurity concern.

Length of Time to Resolve Attacks Rated #1 Security Concern:

In response to the question, “What is your biggest cybersecurity concern?” 33 percent of respondents answered, “length of time it takes to resolve attacks,” an increase from 25 percent of respondents last year. As organizations are faced with an increasing risk of data theft, escalating response costs and damage to their reputation, one of their chief concerns today is the damage caused by allowing a threat to remain either undetected or unresolved.

Security teams are beginning to operate under the assumption that their organizations are already compromised. They are becoming increasingly aware that the longer a threat lurks unidentified in their environment, the greater the exposure, loss of productivity, impact on revenue and expense of remediation for the organization. To reduce the time it takes to identify and respond to threats, they replace outdated incident response methods that usually involve home-grown tools coupled with manual investigation by security analysts, with automated detection and incident response products such as Guidance Software’s EnCase® Cybersecurity and EnCase® Analytics products.

EnCase Cybersecurity and EnCase Analytics help organizations reduce the gap between detecting an incident and mobilizing a rapid response. Through integration with leading Security Information and Event Management (SIEM ) vendors, including HP ArcSight, EnCase Cybersecurity automates critical time-sensitive aspects of the incident response process, reducing response and remediation time to a matter of minutes or hours, from days or weeks. EnCase Analytics empowers customers to find and expose cyber threats hiding behind complex relationships in the massive amounts of data that exist within the sum of all endpoints of an enterprise.

BYOD Crackdown:

The percentage of companies allowing employees to use their own devices for work purposes dropped sharply year over year. Just over half (51 percent) of the CEIC Survey respondents this year said their companies allow employees to use their own devices to do work, either in accordance with an official bring your own device or BYOD policy or as a casual rule of thumb, compared to 78 percent last year. Thirty-two percent of respondents said their companies ban non-company devices to do work, which was up from 22 percent in 2012.
