ABSTRACT: Each year EY complies the Global Information Security Survey (GISS) to better understand the best ways to support their clients. For 20 years each annual GISS report is a valuable tool for all who work in cybersecurity. In 2017 the world was hit by several high profile global cyber security incidences. The research report in the GISS reveals that these events were a catalyst for many organisations to change the way that their organisations approach cybersecurity.
