SURVEY: CYBER ATTACKS AND SECURITY BREACHES ARE CONSTANT THREATS TO CORPORATIONS AND GOVERNMENTS

Source: Computer Security Institute

Posted on March 7, 2011

The comprehensive findings of a year-long survey of security program managers are now available from the Computer Security Institute (CSI). In its 15th year, this far-reaching study is the only independent report to provide unbiased information and analysis about targeted attacks, unauthorized access, incident response, and the economic decisions organizations make regarding computer security, and the way they manage the risk associated with security breaches.

Key findings from the 2010/2011 CSI Computer Crime and Security Survey include:

• Almost half of the respondents experienced a security incident, with 45.6% of them reporting they had been subject of at least one targeted attack.

• Malware infection continues to be the most commonly seen attack.

• Fewer financial frauds were reported than in previous years, with only 8.7% saying they had seen this type of incident.

• Tools that improve visibility into networks, Web applications, and endpoints were ranked among the highest on information security and information technology manager's wish lists, including better log management, security information and event management, security data visualization, and security dashboards.

In addition to in-depth analysis and historical comparisons of the above findings, the report also contains details about respondents' security programs, including budgeting, policies implemented, tools used, satisfaction with security tools, budgets, degree of outsourcing, use of metrics, and effects of compliance requirements. The survey was conducted from July 2009through June 2010 and respondents included U.S. security practitioners from the private and public sectors.

"With Nasdaq's computers recently breached by hackers and the rise in mobile devices as a business tool, it is more important than ever for those involved in their companies computer security to have the latest information and understanding of computer crime and security," said Robert Richardson, CSI Director.

A complimentary Webinar providing an overview of the 44-page survey can be accessed on demand at the CSI website. Moderated by Mr. Richardson, and featuring the survey project leader, General Dynamics Department of Defense & Commercial Cyber Solutions Director, Jim Jaeger, this 60-minute session takes a comprehensive look at the survey's findings and implications.
