Even IT security professionals are pessimistic about the security of personal data in this digital age, according to a new nCircle survey.
The survey noted that 66 per cent of the 83 IT professionals polled said their data was less secure than it was two years ago.
“IT security professionals see online data attacks every day and they know that no-one’s data is secure,” said nCircle senior researcher Sheldon Malm in a statement. “IT professionals are keenly aware that most organizations adopt a defensive approach to data security which is an incomplete solution that leaves both data and organizations vulnerable.”
Meanwhile, an earlier survey of 130 IT security professionals showed that 58 per cent believe that legal liability for the security of customer data should be outside the IT organization
