The C-Suite is tasked with accelerating the business. But how do you accomplish that in the digital age where CISOs are in charge of defending against the onslaught of cyberthreats every day on every device, every app, every user, every cloud? For those in charge of information security, we’ve created this report to educate you on the state of your profession as it relates to keeping your organizations safe.

You generally want to support the business, and not mire it down in bureaucracy. If you’re going to be a bit more open, how are you mitigating control? This is going to be different for everyone. CISOs must deal with that balance of organizational culture while combating the most critical threats.

Surveying almost 2,000 security leaders across 11 countries in Asia Pacific, from organizations of 100–499 to large enterprises and the public sector, we gathered data in four areas where security decision-makers carry out their charges:

  • Cybersecurity culture
  • Security alerts and the impact of data breaches
  • Cybersecurity trends: Cloud and Operational Technology threats
  • The defenders’ approach on managing vendors

Each country report has a specific introduction and recommendations section in addition to these topics.

In this regional summary, you’ll find the top eight most interesting things to come out of the 2019 Asia Pacific CISO Benchmark Study, key regional trends such as average alert remediation and downtime* and costs of a breach, and finally a comprehensive recommendations section which addresses the key issues outlined in the report. This covers
how to simplify your security environment, how to get more investment from the boardroom, and how to address the security skills gap.
