Research reveals 74 per cent of IT directors admit lack of trust in their network security

Seventy-four per cent of senior executives feel exposed to cybercrime, according to the annual security survey carried out by SafeNet, a global leader in information security.

1,200 senior IT and security professionals were asked how secure they believe their corporate network to be against a security breach. Of those respondents, only 26 per cent said they had full confidence in the security of their network, describing it as ‘very secure’.

The majority of respondents - 67 per cent - said they were not fully confident about protecting their networks from security breaches, while the remaining seven per cent admitted they considered it to be ‘not at all secure’. This latter result indicates a rise in network vulnerability over the last year, as just two per cent of respondents admitted to feeling so exposed when asked the same question in 2006.
