A new survey by the Ponemon Institute suggests that the walls between IT and the business side of the house have not fully come down.
According to a survey of nearly 5,000 IT security professionals around the globe, 31 percent of cyber-security teams never speak with their executive team about cyber-security. Of those that did, 23 percent did so annually. Only one percent spoke to executives weekly, while 11 percent did so quarterly.
The survey - which was sponsored by Websense - fielded answers from security practitioners from 15 countries, including Australia, China, Germany and the United States. On average, each of the respondents had 10 years of experience in the field.
"This Ponemon Institute security survey highlights that a lack of communication, education and inadequate security systems is making it possible for cybercriminals to attack organizations across the globe," said John McCormack, Websense CEO, in a statement.
