Share of French businesses feeling prepared against cyber attacks 2020

The CESIN group (Information Security and Digital Security Experts Club), is a platform that offers a place of exchange of information about cyber security related issues between digital security experts.
The group conducted a survey in order to assess French companies' (part of the CESIN group) sense of security against large-scale cyber threats in 2020.
In total, 39 percent of the sample reported feeling ready against cyber attacks. However, the majority (61 percent) did not feel prepared to handle IT threats in 2020.
