Cybersecurity News Cycle: The Absolute 2021 Endpoint Risk Report is Released

The third annual edition of Absolute’s Endpoint Risk Report has been released.

This year’s report examines where organizations should be focusing their efforts as they continue to support new ways of working amidst a fast-evolving cyber threat landscape.

In their report summary, Absolute says the following:

“The rapid shift to support new ways of working challenged even the most sophisticated organizations to maintain healthy security postures. Amidst an ever-evolving threat landscape, IT and security teams raced to adopt risk management strategies for environments that would have been unimaginable only two years ago.

“Investment in cybersecurity technologies reached new heights but was outpaced by the increase in data breaches — and the average cost of a breach was significantly higher for organizations with remote teams.

“With 73% of respondents in a recent CSO study saying that the impact of the pandemic will alter the way their business evaluates risk for at least the next five years,3 the third annual edition of Absolute’s Endpoint Risk Report sets out to understand where organizations should focus their efforts now.”

The report examines numerous factors, such as remaining vulnerabilities, the increase of sensitive data on devices, endpoint complexity exacerbating risks, strategies to reduce risk, and much more.
