Repercussions of Lack of Collaboration (IDG)

Are you at risk?

Breaches. Outages. Spiraling Costs.

Most of those surveyed admitted paying the price for dysfunction between their network & cybersecurity teams. This includes: breaches, data loss, outages, increased costs, and more.

What’s really to blame?

Many blame the failed exercise in teamwork on conflicting objectives, unequal network visibility, and siloed organizational structures. All this results in overlapping responsibilities, tug-of-wars, duplicated work, and unidentified security gaps.

 

A Path Forward

The good news is that both cybersecurity and networking teams want to collaborate more. Those that do are reaping the benefits that comes with greater network visibility.

“Integration of the cybersecurity and network teams would greatly increase productivity, streamline processes, and increase delivery speed of solutions.”
