To mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month which falls in October each year, we are pleased to announce that the Devolutions’ State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report is on the way!
About the Survey
For the second consecutive year, Devolutions surveyed IT decision makers in small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) around the world, to understand the state of their cybersecurity profile — and see if it is a good news story, or a bad news story. What did we discover? It is BOTH good news and bad news!
On the positive side, here are a few insights:
- 92% of SMBs have a process in place to revoke account access for ex-employees.
- 74% of SMBs are providing their workforce with cybersecurity training.
- 71% of SMBs are using a password manager to store passwords.
But on the negative side, we also found that:
- Only 31% of SMBs have a password management policy that covers minimum password length, sufficient password complexity, minimum password history, minimum password age, and mandatory MFA/2FA.
- Only 29% of SMBs are monitoring the full roster of privileged accounts in their company.
- Only 13% of SMBs have a fully deployed Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution in place.
The full Devolutions State of Cybersecurity in SMBs in 2021-2022 Survey Report dives deep into the good and the bad about:
- Cyberattacks and Threats in SMBs
- Password Management in SMBs
- Use of Privileged Access Management in SMBs
- Cybersecurity Training & Management in SMBs
- Cybersecurity Investment in SMBs
We also include 15 targeted recommendations to help SMBs address gaps, vulnerabilities, and concerns — so they can stay safe on an increasingly more dangerous and costly cyberthreat landscape.
