Key Results from the 2021 Cloud Security Report

2021 Cloud Security Report

The 2021 Cloud Security Report, sponsored by (ISC)2, explores current cloud security trends and challenges, how organizations are responding to security threats in the cloud and reveals tools and best practices organizations are considering.

Based on a comprehensive survey of 783 cybersecurity professionals conducted in early 2021 to uncover how cloud user organizations are responding to security threats in the cloud, and what training, certifications and best practices IT cybersecurity leaders are prioritizing in their move to the cloud.

Join (ISC)2 on July 21, 2021 at 1:00PM Eastern for highlights of the results and to get key insights including:

  • A majority of cybersecurity professionals (96%) confirm they are at least moderately concerned about public cloud security, a small increase from last year’s survey.
  • For the second year in a row, the key barrier to cloud adoption, organizations mention was a lack of qualified staff (39%) as the biggest impediment to faster adoption.
  • More than half of organizations (57%) expect their cloud budgets to increase over the next 12 months.
  • When asked how organizations rate their overall security readiness, 73% rate their team’s security readiness average or below average. Of those, 78% believe their teams would benefit from cloud security training and/or certification.
