Cybersecurity used to be an afterthought for many organizations. In today’s rapidly advancing technology markets, technology growth is only outpaced by one thing: cyber threats. Cybersecurity is so important that the U.S. Federal Government signed an executive order to improve efforts to identify, deter, protect against, detect, and respond to malicious cyber threats. According to the State of Cybersecurity Report 2021, CompTIA states that 350 thousand new malware programs are found per day, it takes an average of 287 days to identify and contain a data breach, and those breaches cost organizations a whopping $4.24 million on average. It also shows a 10% YoY decline in satisfaction with corporate cybersecurity strategies. The third quarter of 2021 alone introduced 5438 new vulnerabilities, out of which, a staggering 907 vulnerabilities ranked with a CVSS score of high or critical.
The attacks come from all sides, and can even originate inside your network—whether malicious or by hapless mistake. If cybersecurity isn’t a top priority for your business, then you’re setting yourself up for failure.
When it comes to cybersecurity research, it can be hard to know where to start. The executive order, zero trust, ransomware, cloud security, remote workforce security… there’s so much going on! Finding trustworthy resources to inform your strategic decision-making is more than a full-time job.
That’s why we’ve compiled a helpful list of sources you can use to set your organization up for better success so you can win the race against advanced cyber threats.
Take a look at these current reports that give industry insights into the overarching concerns and best practices around cybersecurity. These reports get published annually, and each new publication provides in-depth and timely information that can help you validate your current strategy and make impactful changes to keep your organization safe against changing threats.

Lead the Cybersecurity Fight with Fidelis Cybersecurity Platforms
If you’re not leading with cybersecurity, you’re already behind in the fight against tomorrow’s adversaries–and today’s attackers are probably already inside your network. Fidelis Cybersecurity helps you turn the tables on your attackers and take back your advantage with unified security platforms, including:
- Fidelis Elevate® is an Active XDR platform that makes it more difficult and costly for adversaries to successfully execute their mission while making SOC teams more efficient and effective. Fidelis Cybersecurity does this by integrating deception technologies with detection and response across endpoint (EDR), network (NDR) and cloud. By unifying these technologies, Fidelis Elevate helps organizations engage adversaries earlier in the attack lifecycle and detect and respond to threats before they impact business.
- Fidelis CloudPassage Halo® unifies and automates cloud security and compliance across IaaS, PaaS, servers, and containers to safeguard your cloud infrastructure and provide defense-in-depth. This fast, scalable, and cost-effective platform integrates directly into cloud environments to work seamlessly across any mix of public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Fidelis Halo ensures security is present from the moment new infrastructure is deployed so security teams can keep up with the cloud-speed of digital transformation and keep you ahead of cyber adversaries.
