In 2016, the weapons of mass destruction that stock the arsenals of the world powers make the machinery that killed so many millions during World War I look tame. Yet weapons of physical destruction are not the only ones that menace peace in our times.

The 21st century has witnessed the exponential development of cyber warfare as an existential threat to the modern civilisation. And the parallels between the actions of the First World War a century ago and the Cyber War in 2016 are glaring…

In this special report, we look at the current state of the industry and uncover some alarming results:

  • 39 per cent of professionals are not confident their current defence mechanisms can handle/detect cyber threats
  • 65 per cent of those surveyed are not confident that their defence mechanisms can handle/detect state actors/APTs
  • One in five oil and gas companies still do not have a network IDS, even after all of the serious incidents, from Stuxnet to Shamoon
  • 61 per cent of organisations do not use digital forensics to interpret digital traces

We also present the four symptoms of current business behaviour that lead to complacency and inertia in the face of cyber threats, symptoms that need to be cured before any improvement can be made.
