Survey Respondents Focused on Data Security
DATA PROTECTIONJanuary 5, 2012
SC Magazine reports on its fifth annual "Guarding Against a Data Breach" survey, which found that 63 percent of 488 respondents "are confident that their company's IT security departments have the power, executive support and budget/resources necessary to safeguard customer, client and other critical corporate data." That share is up from 58 percent of last year's respondents. The report also highlights concerns that 2012 "promises still more of the advanced cyber attacks" that occurred in 2011, as well as increases in regulatory audit "and a continuation of end-users and consumers relying on an array of vulnerable technologies to conduct business."
