Threats Exist on Government Networks for Two Weeks Before Detection

Public-sector cybersecurity professionals estimate that cyber threats exist on their networks for an average of 16 days before they are detected, according to a new study released Tuesday by MeriTalk.
The report, called Go Big Security, said 68 percent of more than 300 respondents from federal, state and local IT shops indicated their organization is “overwhelmed” by the volume of security data their organization collects, while 78 percent said at least some of their security data isn’t analyzed because of there isn’t enough time or resources available to do the task.
Eighty-six percent said big data will improve cybersecurity efforts, and 61 percent said big data will help them detect a breach in progress.
