Many organisations in the dark about advanced cyber attacks, research reveals

Many organisations are unaware they are being targeted by advanced cyber attacks and are failing to respond effectively, according to the Ponemon Institute.

Some 41% of more than 500 US organisations polled said they were unable to determine if they were being targeted by zero-day and other advanced cyber threats designed to evade countermeasures.

Most respondents (83%) said their organisations had been targeted recently by advanced attacks and 71% said such attacks have increased in the past year.

According to Ponemon, zero-day attacks are the most prevalent form of advanced threat, but there is an increase in the number of known attacks that are being re-engineered to extend their use.
