Report: a misplaced sense of security?
Despite feeling safer now than a year ago, 20 percent of businesses in a network security survey of 300 IT staffers in companies with more than $30 million in annual revenues admitted to unauthorized breaches into their company networks.
The survey, conducted by security software vendor Britestream Networks and Q&A Research, reported that 76 percent of the companies surveyed feel safer than they were last year.
Of the 76 percent who feel safer, 38 percent credit a more effective implementation of security policies, while 23 percent say additional security investments make their networks safer.
