Third of global orgs breached over seven times in 2022

DALLAS – As many as 32% of organizations across the globe have been compromised multiple times in the past year according to Trend Micro.

The cybersecurity company wrote in their Cyber Risk Index (CRI) report that the globes risk had become elevated on the index from a previous -0.04 in 2021 to -0.15 in 2022 due to increasing cyber risks in North America and Asia. North America was the highest of all the regions with a -0.33 on the index.

"You can't protect what you can't see," wrote Jon Clay, VP of threat intelligence at Trend Micro. "But with hybrid working ushering in a new era of complex, distributed IT environments, many organizations are finding it difficult to eradicate growing security coverage and visibility gaps. To avoid the attack surface spiraling out of control, they need to combine asset discovery and monitoring with threat detection and response on a single platform."

 Trend Micro purports fixing the rising problem by aligning security objectives with an organization’s business objectives and predicts that addressing the shortage of cybersecurity professionals will go a long way to reducing vulnerability.

"The CRI continues to provide a fascinating snapshot of how global organizations perceive their security posture and the likelihood of being attacked,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of Ponemon Institute who compiled the index. “The stakes couldn't be higher in the face of stiff macroeconomic headwinds. Respondents pointed to the high cost of outside expertise, damage to critical infrastructure, and lost productivity as the main negative consequences of a breach."
