Key Findings

Resilience has high ROI

Digital resilience is the ability to prevent, detect, recover and respond to events that have the potential to disrupt business processes and services.


We surveyed over 2,100 security, IT and DevOps leaders and identified four different stages of resilience maturity — beginning, developing, intermediate and advanced. Advanced organizations:


  • Save $48 million per year on downtime costs.
  • Are 2.5 times more likely to be prepared to adapt to meet the demands of a recession.
  • Report 2 times the rate of success of their digital transformation projects.
  • Meet or exceed growth targets 17% more often than beginners.


Digital resilience is the key to enterprise resilience

What capabilities helped these organizations stay secure, performing and innovative in the face of disruption? We asked 26 questions about visibility, detection, investigation, response and collaboration. Key strategies for positive outcomes included:


  • Coordinating crisis management cross-functionally across security, IT and DevOps.
  • Adopting automation, specifically machine learning and auto remediation.
  • Supporting initiatives to accelerate the release cycle by including security and IT.
