Marcum-Hofstra CEO Survey
No. 5, 2022

Cybersecurity Threats, Inflation, and Economic Concerns and Staffing Plans

A majority of CEOs say their companies are not fully prepared for a cybersecurity threat, and an increasing number say their companies are unable to absorb increasing costs stemming from inflation. These are some of the key findings in the latest CEO survey from Marcum LLP and Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business.

Less than one-third of CEOs (31.8%) said their company is well-prepared for any cybersecurity threat they might face in the foreseeable future, while 58.1% said they are adequately prepared but could be doing more. Ten percent say they are behind in efforts to protect their companies from breaches.
