One-third of execs trust automated systems more than humans for cybersecurity

About 57 percent of executives report trusting automated systems as much as or more than human workers to protect their organizations from cyberthreats, according to a Radware report.

Radware, a cybersecurity and applications delivery solutions provider, surveyed 200 executives from the U.S. and Europe for its "2017 Executive Application & Network Security Survey" report.

Here are five findings from the report.

1. Eighty-one percent of executives said they have already implemented automated security solutions.

2. Thirty-eight percent of executives hypothesize automated security systems will constitute the primary method of managing cybersecurity within two years.

3. One-third of executives surveyed reported trusting automated systems more than humans to protect their organization, while one-quarter of executives said they trust human workers more than automated systems.

4. One-quarter of executives said they trusted automated systems and human workers equally. The remaining respondents said both humans and automation have vulnerabilities.

5. Forty-seven percent of executives said information security is a major goal they consider when strategizing digital transformation.
