More than half of UK businesses plan to hire a CISO in the next two years
astly , a global Edge cloud platform provider , has
F researched the biggest security threats facing UK businesses today , and in the next few years , to understand how businesses are looking to future-proof their systems . The research , based on insights from information security and IT professionals across 250 UK companies , revealed that only a quarter of businesses currently employ a CISO ( Chief Information Security Officer ) but a further 56 % are planning to hire one within the next six to 24 months . These dedicated leaders will help companies to understand and headoff potential threats as efficiently and effectively as possible .
The research also found that certain sectors are ahead of the curve , with 75 % of businesses in the construction / engineering sector already having a CISO in place , closely followed by local / national government ( 60 %) and aerospace ( 50 %).
Furthermore , one in four people claim CISOs are too often blamed for things which are not their fault . However , perceptions of this differ greatly across sectors , with over 50 % of businesses in the government sector , construction / engineering and aerospace believing CISOs are often blamed for things that aren ’ t their fault , compared with just 18 % in the technology and finance sectors .
Though UK businesses have identified the need for this lead role in security , in order for it to be a significant step in futureproofing their technology , the job specification needs to be clear in order to be effective .
The increased presence of CISOs across UK businesses demonstrates a rising interest in the importance of having strong security solutions in place across businesses . Despite it being a relatively new role , Fastly ’ s research shows the CISO parameters are still unclear to many , with almost a third ( 31 %) believing that CISOs should have an in-depth understanding of all areas of IT .
