UK boards have little faith in their firms’ security

A doubting 38% of the 293 senior managers surveyed by nCircle expect their firms to suffer a network attack this year and 74% complacently think that security issues are a fact of business life.

“Clearly many current security strategies are not winning the war, either in the fight against cybercrime or to win the confidence of their senior managers,” says Kevin Lamb, EMEA operations director at nCircle.

Sky-rise security budgets – up 15% last year according to Infonetics research – have had little impact on their views. Despite the investment, 68% of the managers don’t feel any more confident in network security this year than before.
