Trellix Report Reveals Key U.S. Critical Infrastructure Providers Lack Advanced Cyber Defenses

Majority of U.S. Providers in Oil & Gas, Healthcare, and State & Local Emergency Services Have Not Implemented Full Cybersecurity Capabilities due to Lack of In-House Cyber Skills

Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), today released a global Cyber Readiness Report investigating how U.S. critical infrastructure providers are preparing to defend themselves against cyberattacks. The report, based on research conducted by Vanson Bourne, surveyed 900 cybersecurity professionals from organizations with 500 or more employees. Trellix designed its survey to gauge the maturity of advanced cybersecurity implementations among U.S. government agencies, state and local governments and private sector peers responsible for protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure.

“The hostilities in Ukraine have sharpened focus on the cyber readiness of critical infrastructure,” said Bryan Palma, CEO of Trellix. “The risks are known and well-discussed, but often these organizations do not have the cybersecurity talent to implement the necessary defenses. We need to scale security skills to prevent understaffed critical infrastructure from falling victim to cyber-attacks.”
