To help SMBs grasp the scope and dynamic of the current cyber threat landscape — and ultimately make decisions that reduce the likelihood and severity of cyberattacks — Devolutions recently surveyed decision-makers in SMBs worldwide on a variety of relevant topics, including privileged access management (PAM), password management practices, and cybersecurity trends

The State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2020-2021 survey report is now available and you can read it here.

Here are some key insights of the survey:

  • While 78% of SMBs consider a PAM solution to be at least somewhat important to their organization’s cybersecurity program, 76% of SMBs do not have a fully deployed PAM solution in place.
  • 62% of SMBs do not conduct a security audit at least once a year, and 14% of SMBs never perform a conduct audit at all.
  • 57% of SMBs say they have experienced a phishing attack in the last three years.

Since October is cybersecurity awareness month, we’d like to continue with the theme of preventing data breaches and leaks by asking you: what is your best cybersecurity advice?

As usual, there are no limits to what you can answer, and you’re invited to share real-life examples from your own experience: the good, the bad, and the ugly (which, by the way, is the theme of the upcoming Infographic for our 2020-2021 State of Cybersecurity in SMBs Report — stay tuned!).
