Threats to data center cybersecurity continue to rise in 2024. Three in four operators report experiencing a cyber incident in the past three years, according to the Uptime Institute Data Center Security Survey 2024. These incidents can be expensive, with more than one in three costing more than $100,000 in damages. IT software and network configuration issues have been the most frequent cause of cyber-related incidents. As data center networks become more complex and interconnected, these incidents will likely become more common. Although the survey results suggest that cyber resiliency assessments are being strengthened to protect risk areas, only half of operators rate them as effective.
