Delinea Onsite RSA Conference Survey Reveals Cloud Security Top Cybersecurity Concern in 2022


SAN FRANCISCO, June 9, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Delinea, a leading provider of preferred access management (PAM) solutions for seamless security, today released the results of its own anonymous on-site survey among cybersecurity professionals attending the RSA Conference held this year. week at the Moscone Center, San Francisco. A survey of over 100 cybersecurity professionals asked attendees about their biggest cyber security concerns in 2022, where they are when it comes to cybersecurity and cyber hygiene practices.

Namely, research has shown that cloud security (37%) is the main concern for cyber security in 2022, more than ransomware (19%) and remote workers (17%).

“Protecting digital assets in the cloud is becoming the number one priority, reflecting a more proactive approach to cyber security,” said Joseph Carson, chief security scientist and advisory to CISO in Delinea. “As companies increasingly rely on the cloud for infrastructure, application development and business process automation, security skills and solutions must be in place. Ensuring privileged access to cloud infrastructure and workloads before attackers take advantage is imperative.”

The survey also found that 80% of respondents claim that their organization has not been violated in the last 12 months. This positive response may be due to increased cyber hygiene among employees. For example, the survey states that 59% of respondents claim not to use the same password on multiple accounts, and nearly two-thirds (66%) state that they use multifactor authentication (MFA) whenever available.

“Passwords should never be the only security control for access to critical systems, applications and privileges. Implementing MFA controls adds an extra layer of protection if an attacker is able to compromise the password. MFA should be needed not only on the login system, but and at the point of horizontal and vertical elevation of privilege, “Carson continues.

When asked about readiness to react to incidents, cyber insurance was taken into account by 41% of respondents who said that their organization has or is strongly considering arming itself with cyber insurance.

For this research, Delinea surveyed more than 100 random participants of the RSA conference. For more information, visit Delinea at RSA S-1227 booth in Moscone South or visit
