In addition, there has been an uptake in collective defence, characterised by the proactive cross-industry sharing of intelligence, comparative analysis of threat data to enable prediction of risk, and development of models to hinder malicious actors.

This factsheet provides a summary of the key challenges of cyber security in 2015, collective defence mechanisms and challenges to incorporate threat intelligence.

Key insights

  • Approximately half of organisations are conducting collective defence.
  • 33 percent of organisations estimate the risk posed by their supply chain high. This is due to the inability to identify weak links until it is too late, combined with the new technologies employed by other organisations in the supply chain.
  • 50 percent of organisations are creating actionable intelligence.
