That’s according to a report by Swedish based cybersecurity analysts Outpost24 based on two surveys; one carried out at London’s Infosecurity Europe conference and another at San Francisco’s RSA, both in 2018.
Both, admittedly, had a pretty small sample size: The UK figures are from a survey carried out on 269 security professionals during Infosecurity Europe 2018. While the US number are based on a survey of 155 security professionals at RSA 2018.
Commenting in the release of the two reports Bob Egner VP of products at Outpost24 said: “Ignoring a critical security incident is asking for trouble. The US regularly tops the list of most attacked countries, so security professionals should be taking this threat very seriously and doing all they can to minimise their attack surface,” he added.
