Nearly two-thirds of IT leaders expect a serious data breach


"Nearly two-thirds of IT leaders expect a serious data breach in the next year, a secure business agility survey of 300 businesses in the UK, France, the Nordics and the Netherlands has revealed.

While most organisations believe connecting people to the best technology is vital to business productivity, many struggle to achieve agility because of traditional on-premise security thinking, according to the survey report by identity and device management firm Okta.

Failing to adapt and upgrade security tools is putting organisations at risk, the study shows, with 65% of respondents expecting a data breach within the next 12 months if they do not upgrade legacy security systems in time.

‘In order to be more productive, organisations worldwide are investing in cloud and mobile technologies, enabling their staff to work from virtually anywhere,’ said David Baker, chief security officer at Okta.”
