A survey of cybersecurity leaders in the era of digital transformation and Covid 19
The number of social media users has increased by more than 13 percent over the past year, to nearly half a billion new users - taking the global social media active user total count to almost 4.2 billion by the start of 2021. On average, more than 1.3 million unique users joined social media platforms every day during 2020, equating to roughly 15½ new users every second. With the meteoric rise of users engaging daily on social media platforms, the need for secure accounts has become essential for both companies and individuals. In some cases, the need for secure accounts presents a conflict with the very essence of social media platforms themselves, to empower and expand connectivity across broad audiences and networks. However, some activities that now seem natural due to the ubiquity of social media in our work and professional lives—like accepting connections from unknown individuals or profiles or accessing personal social media accounts from work devices—can increase vulnerability. In the digital era, cybersecurity leaders should be the most vigilant users in their organizations. They are required to protect continuously expanding attack surfaces as cybercriminals look to gain access to sensitive personal and work-related data through sophisticated tools. Though temporary, unauthorized access to such accounts can trigger a domino effect that can devastate the entire organization. Yet, alarming shortfalls in cybersecurity leader cyber hygiene remain.
