The report highlights the ongoing challenges many organizations have around securing the digital investments they made during the pandemic. Such investments were necessary to support remote working, drive business efficiencies and agility, and understand the corporate attack surface.

Trend Micro’s Cyber Risk Index Report added that My organization’s IT security function supports security in the DevOps environment. My organization’s IT security leader (CISO) has sufficient authority and resources to achieve a strong security posture. My organization’s IT security function strictly enforces acts of non-compliance to security policies, standard operating procedures, and external requirements.

The results from the report indicate that more resources must be provided to people, processes, and technology across the world to enhance preparedness and reduce overall risk levels.
