IT Study Reveals Same Challenges, Accelerated Pace
DATA PROTECTIONApril 21, 2011
A survey of 2,400 IT security specialists from around the world shows compliance, governance and information security management at the top of their priorities for the remainder of 2011, reports InfoSecurity. The study, conducted by not-for-profit IT security association ISACA, found that the complexities of the IT landscape are accelerating due to new technologies and regulations as well as an increase in data breaches. Tony Noble, a member of ISACA's guidance and practice committee, notes that this year's survey shows a need to better align "business with IT to unlock greater value," adding that there's a perception on the business side of organizations that "IT is managed in a silo."
