Tripwire, a leading global provider of IT security solutions, and the Ponemon Institute recently announced the results of “The State of Risk-Based Security Management (RBSM) Study.” This international study included data from 2,145 individuals from organizations of different sizes and types in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands.
This study evaluates how organizations view their risk-based security management (RBSM) and how they address their RBSM through formal programs, deployment of specific controls and how they measure program effectiveness.
The report details the current state of risk management and perceptions about the benefits to organizations as well as provides guidance on how to strengthen an organization’s security practices and add value to the business through a risk-based approach. The report also provides recommendations for mitigating risks, protecting data and detecting cyber attacks and data breaches accurately and efficiently.
