Closing the Cybersecurity Readiness Gap: A Global Imperative in Our Hybrid World

As a cybersecurity professional and a member of the World Economic Forum New Champions Community, I'm always on the lookout for insightful reports and studies that shed light on the state of cybersecurity. Cisco's recent Cybersecurity Readiness Index has caught my attention, providing a comprehensive and eye-opening view of global preparedness to face the rapidly evolving threats in our increasingly hybrid world.

In a post-COVID era, businesses are facing unique challenges as they transition from static operating models to dynamic, hybrid environments. Cisco's index reveals a worrying reality: only 15% of organizations worldwide are deemed to have a mature level of preparedness to handle the security risks of our hybrid world. The report also highlights the alarming cybersecurity readiness gap that exists across different regions, industries, and company sizes.

Despite the concerning findings, the report offers a silver lining: the majority of organizations are keen to invest in improving their cybersecurity readiness. This presents an opportunity for businesses to prioritize security resilience, making it foundational to their overall strategy and ensuring they can bounce back quickly from potential threats.

I highly recommend downloading and reading Cisco's Cybersecurity Readiness Index, as it serves as a wake-up call for senior business leaders. Click Here.

Closing the cybersecurity readiness gap is a global imperative we must collectively address, lest we fall further behind in this accelerating hybrid world. Let's use this report as a catalyst to drive change and create a more secure, resilient future for businesses and society as a whole.
