Survey: Data Less Secure

nCircle survey highlights insider view of increasing risk to personal and corporate information online

SAN FRANCISCO -- Nearly Two-thirds (66%) of 83 IT security professionals surveyed believe their own personal data is less secure than 24 months ago. nCircle, the leading provider of agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, conducted the survey during January 2007. The full poll results are:

Question: "Do you think your personal confidential information is more or less secure than it was 24 months ago?"

Total votes: 83
Less - 66%
More - 34%

According to Abe Kleinfeld, CEO of nCircle, “These results point out the real and present danger to online data that IT security professionals see everyday. Security professionals believe that their own personal data is at risk because they know that most organizations approach the problem of data security from a defensive position, one which leaves both the data and the organizations vulnerable.”
