Industry Survey White Paper

CIISec annually runs a survey across its membership and the wider information security industry to garner views on several factors relating to the security profession. How people feel about the roles they have, the success, failures and challenges they face, and how that translates into a safer environment for businesses dealing with security and cyber risks.

This is the sixth “state of the profession” report that CIISec (formerly IISP) has produced. It started as an idea to get member feedback and seek to derive some interesting data points on the challenges facing the security professional, to get their views on issues and to see what the personal demographics were. It has now become a major statistical exercise – generating a wealth of data and once again the results make interesting reading.
