Indian organizations two days slower in responding to cyber breach
A survey of over 1900 senior IT professionals reveals that on an average organizations globally take 162 hours to remediate cyber attacks.
Globally it takes fraud prevention teams an average of 162 hours-approximately seven days-to detect, triage, and investigate a cyber attack. Unfortunately, Indian organizations are laggards in this area, says the latest survey ‘2019 Global Security Attitude Survey’ by CrowdStrike, a US-based cyber security firm. Businesses in India are 60 hours-two and a half days-slower than their counterparts.
Almost all Indian respondents (97 percent) are wary of malicious attacks emanating from unfriendly countries with more than 40 percent most worried about the attacks originating from China, Pakistan, and even from within the country (India), the survey reveals.
The survey measures the attitude of the organizations towards cyber security readiness by analyzing the speed with which they detect, investigate and respond to a threat. It reveals that even globally majority of organizations lack the speed and agility so crucial when it comes to detecting and responding to an intrusion on their business networks or sensitive data. This lack of urgency can prove detrimental to the interests of businesses globally as it can provide attackers with more than enough time to maximize their exploits and escape unchallenged.
The security firm recommends organizations to follow the 1-10-60 metrics which specifies an average time of one minute to detect an intrusion, 10 minutes to investigate and 60 minutes to remediate the problem.
