DATA PROTECTIONJanuary 4, 2011
The Great Recession may have lingering effects on information security plans in 2011, SC Magazine reports. That's according to a recent survey that found 36 percent of respondents expect their budgets for IT security projects and data leakage prevention efforts to increase in 2011, compared with 41 percent in 2010. The Guarding Against a Data Breach survey, conducted by SC Magazine, ArcSight and research firm CA Walker, polled 468 information security leaders. Sixty percent expect their budgets to remain the same. Concerns about damage to the brand and compliance demands are top drivers for security planning, the report states.
