Security pros waste 10 hours a week due to inefficient systems

Process and software inefficiencies play a major role in slowing down an organization’s ability to detect and respond to cyber threats, according to LogRhythm.

Over one-third of IT decision makers say their teams spend at least three hours a day on tasks that could be handled by better software. Additionally, the majority think the average cybersecurity professional wastes as much as 10 hours a week due to inadequate software.

The study, conducted by Widmeyer, which surveyed 751 IT decision makers from the U.S., U.K. and Asia/Pacific, also found that an overwhelming majority (88 percent) of respondents view insider threats as a dangerous and growing concern in defending their organizations.
