A survey report by Hitachi ID says cyber security and remote support are the top goals for CIOs in 2020. The report “Top IT Budget Priorities Through 2020,” which is based on a survey of 131 senior IT executives, said the majority of respondents had changed their IT priorities since the start of the year.
Nearly 90% of IT leaders cited cyber security as the top priority for the rest of 2020; while 72% of them said it is a long-term goal as their priorities had shifted since the beginning of the year. A majority of the CIOs are looking to improve security standards across their environment. They are also focusing on identity and access management (IAM) above other initiatives to help them achieve their top priority of cyber security.
