Organisations lack confidence in preventing cyber attacks: report

According to findings from the 2014 IT Security and Privacy Survey conducted by Protiviti, organisations continue to struggle to manage data securely, prepare for potential crisis scenarios, and defend against hacking and other cyber threats.

Ryan Rubin, managing director at Protiviti said: “Our survey results tell a story of gaps between where companies currently stand and where they should be in relation to fundamental elements of IT security.

“Some progress has been made since our last survey, yet many organisations still fall short of important standard protocols for IT security and privacy. Companies need to take more action in relation to the risks they recognise to better protect their crucial data.”
