While upper management has overall admitted it is indeed worried about the current state of cybersecurity, it still sometimes fails to take (the right course of) action. This is a fact once more highlighted by the results of a study conducted by NewAlpha Asset Management.

Recently (this is a relative term here, we surely count the evolution in years), a climate of digital anxiety has settled among professionals and individuals alike. A focus group coordinated by NewAlpha questioned the representatives of 9 companies and revealed that 77.78% of executives consider IT security to be a main concern for their business. BUT (there’s always a “but” in every story), while entrepreneurs have become increasingly aware of the issue, positive results are slow to appear. Indeed, the number of cyber attacks recorded at a global scale last year still spiked as opposed to 2015. While awareness campaigns only intensified over the course of 2016, how can we justify this contrasting image?
