For this research, Infosys surveyed 867 senior executives representing 847 firms from 12 industries, with annual revenues over US$500 million across US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

These include training/certifications (61 percent), enablement sessions (54 percent) and creating security awareness among employees (51 percent)
