Most CEOs Not Worried About IT Security
BY Curt Finch
The Ponemon Institute just released data showing that 48% of CEOs surveyed felt that hackers rarely target corporate data, while 53% of other C-level executives disagree, fearing that their company's data is under attack each day. The study also showed that CEOs are less aware of security snafus in their companies than other C-level executives. Not only that, but many of these CEOs did not even agree with other managers on who is responsible for protecting company data.
Can CEOs afford to remain ignorant on the security dangers their companies face?
