Cyberthreat Defense Reports

CyberEdge’s Flagship Annual Research Study

CyberEdge’s annual Cyberthreat Defense Report (CDR) has rapidly become the de facto standard for assessing organizations’ security posture, for gauging perceptions of cybersecurity professionals, and for ascertaining current and planned cybersecurity investments. CyberEdge’s Silver, Gold, and Platinum sponsors make our annual report possible.

The CDR is the most geographically diverse survey of cybersecurity perceptions in the industry. 1,200 IT security professionals respond to our survey each year. They represent companies and government organizations (with 500+ employees) in 17 countries and 19 regions.

“I’ve worked with CyberEdge since it was founded. Over the years, I’ve relied on CyberEdge for custom books and eBooks, white papers, competitive analysis, custom research, and messaging development. I’ve never encountered a marketing firm with so much expertise. CyberEdge is more than a vendor to me – they’re a strategic marketing partner.”
