Tenable Network Security released its annual cyber security assurance report card last week. This report uses the responses of more than 500 IT professionals in organizations of more than 1,000 employees. Tenable averages responses of the professionals and then “grades” according to cybersecurity issue, industry and country.
Overall, the United States received a B-, with the highest grade being 86 percent in network infrastructure security, and lowest grade being 66 percent in mobile device security. Three major strengths the U.S. professionals listed were conveying risks to executives/board members, executive and board level understanding of risks, and measuring effectiveness of security investments. Three major weaknesses were risk assessment for mobile devices, cloud infrastructure and cloud applications.
One way for enterprises to assure complete IT and mobile asset security is to work with a certified asset management company. HOBI International, Inc is a R2, RIOS, ISO 14001 certified IT asset management company that provides the best practices in data management, security and erasure, as well as device repair, remarketing and recycling.
