Cybersecurity awareness has doubled

The 2020 Netwrix IT Trends report: Reshaped Reality, reveals the change in IT priorities for organisations for the rest of the year due to the coronavirus outbreak, based on a global survey of 937 IT pros. The top three IT priorities for the 120 IT respondents from the UK were network security (73%), data security (71%) and cybersecurity awareness among employees (69%).

Other UK-centric findings include: organisations are more focused on data privacy now than before the crisis as 60% prioritised this option compared to 30% pre-pandemic; the number of organisations that consider digital transformation as their top priority has significantly decreased from 57% to 20%; the importance of cloud migration has decreased from 52% to 22% and only 40% of respondents plan to focus on automation of IT processes. This number is down from 70% pre-pandemic.
