New Report Examines the Current State of ITOps and SecOps


The majority of IT and security teams are understaffed, according to a survey from InformationWeek.

According to the 2022 State of ITOps and SecOps survey from InformationWeek, the majority of IT and security teams have effectively handled the operational challenges of dealing with primarily remote workforces. However, the majority of respondents also said their teams are understaffed.

This year’s survey looked specifically at how IT and security teams adjusted to organizational changes resulting from the global pandemic, and 77% of respondents rated their response to working from home as effective or highly effective.

Other findings include: 

  • 84% of survey respondents said that cybersecurity is important or absolutely critical to their organization and top management.
  • 72% of respondents said their organizations don’t have enough general IT staff members, and 64% said they don’t have enough cybersecurity staff.

Additionally, the survey found that general IT is assuming some responsibilities and functions that were previously handled by the security team. For example, the report says, “IT operations is more likely to be in charge of ensuring security controls for network, cloud, and application service providers than they were in the past.”

 “These days security is the responsibility of everyone in IT, not just the cybersecurity team,” the report said.
