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.
