Study Delves Into the Stress of the Job
DATA PROTECTIONOctober 26, 2011
A survey commissioned by data protection company Websense shows that while many IT managers feel their jobs depend on keeping company data secure, 91 percent said new levels of management are engaging in data security conversations. Systems & Networks Security reports the study polled 1,000 IT managers and 1,000 non-IT employees in Canada, Australia, the U.S. and the UK about security threats, and 86 percent of respondents said their job would be at risk if a security incident occurred, while 72 percent called protecting company data more stressful than getting a divorce. Meanwhile, "When asked about real-time protection solutions in place, many respondents listed product and vendor names that don't offer real-time protection at all," said a Websense spokesman.
