93% of board members are asking about the organization’s cybersecurity protection measures. Ninety percent of leaders prefer to hire people who have certifications in technology, and ninety percent are willing to pay for their employees to get the certification.

More than half of the people who answered the survey (56%) said that it is hard for their organizations to find cybersecurity talent. This is a slight drop from 2021 when 60% of people said the same thing. Most respondents (54%) indicate that retention is also a challenge, a slight increase from 52% last year. 

 In 2022, 53 percent more organizations confirmed five or more breaches than they did in 2021. The report also revealed that not only are breaches becoming more frequent, but they are also becoming more expensive, with 48% of organizations that experienced at least one breach in the past year reporting that the cost of remediation exceeded $1 million.
