South African Businesses Underprepared for Cyberattacks: FSACCI Hosts Crucial Event

A recent Cisco survey reveals a glaring vulnerability in South Africa's business landscape: cybersecurity preparedness. At the same time, 73% of surveyed companies anticipate a cyberattack within the next two years, and a mere 5% boast "mature" defences. 

This significant disconnect between perception and reality underscores the urgency for businesses to strengthen their cybersecurity posture. 

The Cisco survey assessed readiness across five critical areas: 

·                     Identity Intelligence: Managing and securing user data within the network (76% of SA companies lack maturity

·                     Network Resilience: Ability to withstand and recover from network attacks. 

·                     Device Security: Protecting all connected devices from vulnerabilities. 

·                     Cloud Security: Ensuring robust security for cloud-based operations. 

·                     AI Security: Integrating AI for proactive cyber defence.
