Gap widens between IT pros and end users while security worsens

From SC Magazine

"Over half (52%) of IT practitioners believe that policies against the misuse or unauthorised access to company data are being enforced and followed, yet only 35% of end users say their organisations enforce those policies.

A new study from the Ponemon Institute analysed responses from 1,371 end users and 1,656 IT and IT security professionals from various industries in the UK, US, France and Germany.

It was discovered that 61% of respondents working in IT or security roles view the protection of critical company information as a very high or high priority and 38% of end users of this data believe it is a very high or high priority.

To maintain productivity, 38% of IT practitioners and 48% of end users say their organisations would accept more risk to the security of their corporate data.”
