IT pros worry about humans but invest in data and cloud security
In a recent Canon survey, IT professionals indicated that the top security threats to businesses are malicious insiders (30%), human error (25%), and compromised devices (21%). Respondents said the best ways of protecting companies against these threats are data security, network security, and user authentication & ID management. The human factor is conspicuously absent from this list of solutions.
The study also found that 59% of firms have a clear cybersecurity strategy while about half are very pro-active in implementing new security technologies. The latter was especially common for organizations in the ecommerce, government, retail, utilities and automotive sectors.
