LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$III #Cyber ​​securityAccording to a new research report released today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and consulting company.

The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Cybersecurity — Solutions and Services for the UK report indicates that these goals are the top priorities for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) in UK organisations. The growing use of cloud models such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) is forcing organizations to adapt their cybersecurity approaches, with a focus on holistic resilience which requires more communication and training. for employees and external stakeholders, the report says.

“UK businesses are aligning cybersecurity with IT trends and the changing threat landscape,” said Roger Albrecht, co-head of ISG Cybersecurity. “Moving to the cloud has many benefits, but can create new security challenges. To guard against these threats, fundamental technical and organizational measures are necessary.

The UK government has recognized the importance of cybersecurity and is making major investments to protect UK businesses and foster a growing cybersecurity industry, ISG said. According to a 2022 study by the UK’s National Cyber ​​​​Security Centre, 39% of businesses in the UK experienced a cybersecurity breach in the last 12 months, and for large and medium-sized businesses , the average cost of a breach is £19,400.

As businesses in the UK grapple with growing IT complexity, the establishment of permanent hybrid working and the need for greater agility, many are considering the zero trust (ZT) security model, says ISG. This approach, which requires verification of any device on any network to access corporate resources, can reduce security costs and risk exposure through uniform security across the organization.

“Zero Trust is a major change that affects many aspects of enterprise security,” said Jan Erik Aase, Partner and Global Leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Experienced service and solution providers can help companies implement and operate a ZT environment.”
