A study among IT professionals worldwide reveals that data exfiltration is going strong, but the rules of the game have changed.


MSI conducted a global study on behalf of McAfee among 700 IT security

professionals from organizations with more than 1,000 employees in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Only respondents that experienced a serious data breach incident sometime in their career as an IT professional qualified for this study. The study revealed that despite more spend on security technology and education, and partly because tools are under-deployed 61 percent of IT Professionals experienced a serious data breach. In addition, three fourth of the breaches required disclosure, putting reputation at risk.
