Key Findings

  • Looking forward, cloud security threats are the most concerning external threat
  • Internally, phishing (55%) and ransomware (45%) lead the pack of worries for security departments
  • 92 percent would rather pay a subscription fee, allow ads, or leave a website altogether rather than allow a website to mine cryptocurrency
  • 56 percent believe cybersecurity has become a political pawn

The report has lots of graphs with detailed results. For example, amazing how awareness of cloud security threats has become so pronounced.
