What's The Risk?

Businesses and the individuals charged with protecting enterprises from malicious code and cyber attack are failing to communicate, with firms being left unaware of their levels of risk or the potential for their operation to be adversely impacted.

According to research from nCircle, which interviewed 1,800 CIOs, CSOs and IT directors, 65 per cent of UK respondents had no idea whether their exposure to risk is increasing or decreasing.

Separate research from the Economist Intelligence Unit revealed that only 40 per cent of companies regularly brief the board on emerging threats which will impact their levels of operational risk. Silicon.Com
