  • Tech refresh capabilities: 82% of organizations with modern, consolidated, cloud-based architectures showcase strong tech refresh capabilities. 
  • Procurement: 75% of organizations would prefer buying integrated solutions rather than building them.
  • Organizations with highly integrated systems had a 41% stronger capability of threat detection
  • Firms with a highly skilled workforce, processes and technologies achieve 3.5 times better performance in threat detection.
  • Organizations using Threat Intelligence extensively are Twice more likely to detect & respond to threats.

Richard Archdeacon, Advisory CISO, Cisco enunciated, “The issue of security debt is significant. For the CISO, the way forward is to develop a ‘Buy, Hold, Sell’ strategy. Recognize what you have, define an adaptable architecture, reduce dependency risk, and implement a review loop for future refresh cycles.”
