Vanson Bourne Infographic: IT Security

  1. 1. WHAT PRICE IT SECURITY? AT A GLANCE SECURITY EXPENDITURE 65% say spend on IT security has increased in last 3 years. 65% 7.77% of IT budget is dedicated to security 30% Less than 5% = 30% 5%-10% = 41% More than 10% = 29% % 7.77 29% And this is a common picture across sector and scale of enterprise The average increase in spend is 27%. 41% 27% AWARENESS OF SECURITY THREATS Heightened awareness of threat correlates with higher expenditure Enterprises spending MORE on IT security than 3 years ago are MORE concerned about the threats employees bring: 82% 69% 10% Enterprises spending MORE than 10% of their overall IT budget on security are MORE concerned than the lowest spenders (less than 5% of overall budget) about threats such as: 86% Employees’ attitude toward security protocols Malware 83% 74% Use of personal cloud storage such as Dropbox 76% 57% 45% Use of personally-owned devices 63% 67% 62% Use of personal cloud storage such as Dropbox 65% 73% Malicious external attacks (not commercially motivated) 63% 45% Use of mobile devices 57% Internal threats/attacks Percentage of spend categories recognising the factor as a threat or major threat CONFIDENCE IN PROTECTION AGAINST THREATS Low confidence in protection measures is highest where security expenditure has increased 58% of enterprises are not entirely confident of the controls/protection they have against ANY security threat. More of those that have increased spend in the last 3 years say that they are entirely confident in some of their protection measures than those whose spend has stayed the same or declined (48% vs 31%). The threats most enterprises feel least protected against are: 1. Employees' attitude toward security protocol (only 2% say they are entirely confident) 2. Use of personal cloud storage such as Dropbox (10%) 3. Internal threats/attacks (11%) Survey conducted in March 2013 by Vanson Bourne. Responses of 100 senior IT decision-makers in UK commercial enterprises (1000+ employees)
