Bit9 Security Survey: Nobody Wants To Be A Headline

Rick Whiting

Security Survey Says ...



Bit9, a developer of advanced threat protection security software, conducted a worldwide survey of 1,861 IT and security professionals in businesses and government agencies in March and April. The survey covered such topics as the biggest perceived threats and vulnerabilities, the effectiveness of security practices and legislation, and the amount of information IT organizations should disclose when a cybersecurity breach occurs.

The survey found that nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of the respondents think their companies will be targeted by a cyberattack within the next six months. And two-thirds attributed the increased threats to the growing number of hackers and better-organized criminal groups -- not media hype or weaknesses in their own defenses.
