New Delhi: Globally, organisations face as many as 30 cyber security breaches per year, indicating the need for more investment in innovative technologies to improve cyber resilience, says a report.

According to a new study by Accenture, the average number of focused cyber attacks per organisation has more than doubled this year, compared to the previous 12 months.

For the 2018 State of Cyber Resilience study, Accenture surveyed 4,600 enterprise security practitioners representing companies with annual revenues of $1 billion or more in 15 countries.

However, with 13 per cent of focused attacks being successful, organisations are still facing an average of 30 successful security breaches per year globally.
