    According to the topline results of the survey, 36% of global organizations lack confidence in their ability to detect sophisticated cyber attacks. Linked to this, 36% don't have a threat intelligence program, and 18% don't have identity and access management programs – little wonder then that 69% thought that their IT security budgets should be increased by half.

    Protection from cyber attack should be a priority for all businesses and as the EY data has shown, many organizations could benefit from the guidance of the channel. AVG partners, including A+ Computers and Services, DB Computer Solutions, MCC Computers Ltd., SortMyPC and many more, are already addressing the gaps using AVG Business products.

    Channelnomics editor Jessica Meek also highlighted findings from the EY survey in her recent article, again, emphasizing the opportunity for the channel to help IT professionals prioritize security, provide solutions and services, and also act as trusted advisors on industry developments.

    A few key stats to note:

    • 88% of respondents did not believe their information security infrastructure fully meets their organization’s needs
    • 57% said that the information security function suffers from a lack of available talent
    • 47% said they don’t have a security operation center
    • 54% said they lacked a dedicated function to focus on the impact of emerging technologies
