Concerns about online security constantly top the list of corporate headaches about e-business. However, the IT managers questioned in this week's Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question poll revealed that only 32% of firms have a senior board member responsible for analysing the threat posed by cybercrime.
A worrying 62% of companies said they had no senior board member responsible for cybercrime risk analysis. And 6% of respondents were unsure whether or not their company had a board director responsible for this area.
One IT manager said, "Risk analysis is part of our internal auditing procedures, which are reported to the chairman, but whether risk analysis has ever been applied to cybercrime, I am afraid I don't know."
