77% of IT leaders are confident in their ability to prevent or mitigate a ransomware attack

ExtraHop’s report shows that however capable IT organizations have been in managing the dramatic transformations of the past couple of years, confidence still tends to outstrip actual security posture.

Despite this high confidence (77%) in the ability to prevent or mitigate cybersecurity threats, 64% of IT decision makers (ITDMs) admit that half of their cybersecuirty incidents are the result of outdated IT security postures.

This excessive confidence is even more dangerous as ransomware attacks became so frequent. In fact, 85% reported having suffered at least one ransomware attack, and 74% reported experiencing multiple incidents in the past five years.
