The report surveyed 600 IT and security executives in enterprises that own and/or operate critical infrastructure in 14 countries around the world.The executives surveyed report that their IT networks are under repeated cyberattack, often by high-level adversaries such as nation-states, organized crime gangs or terror groups. The survey data gathered for the report paints, for the first time, a detailed picture of the way those charged with the defense of critical IT networks are responding to cyber-attacks, attempting to secure their systems and working with governments. The impact of such attacks is often severe, and their cost is high and borne widely.
