We promised to publish the results of our poll (http://foboni.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/cyber-war-is-%E2%80%9Congoing%E2%80%9D/ ), so here they are, for your information.
Please note, all percentages are approximate, rounded up to the nearest 5%.
While 60% of the respondents use a well defined risk glossary, only 25% use well-defined risk assessment procedures and 40% expresses probabilities in non numeric ways (qualitative, indexes etc.).
Almost everyone declares to formally evaluate consequences of their decisions, yet 50% do not formally evaluates cascading failures (dominoes effects, interdependent failures).
60% of the respondents define risk tolerability criteria to support their decisions, and almost everyone update their assessments by periodic reviews.
50% have a formal definition for Cyber Defence in their organization, and 75% of the respondent are concerned by possible Cyber impacts (attacks, warfare, etc.) to their organization. Accordingly, 75% believe their organization should strengthen their Cyber Defence scheme.
90% believe that information silos in their organization blur their vision, and almost everyone says that Cyber Defence programs should span across all their organization’s activities.
Now that you see the results spelled out in plain text, what are your reactions?
