Companies to spend 14% more on IT security


Information Shield, in its 2011 Information Security and Data Privacy Staffing Survey, which polled 190 organisations in 34 countries, reveals that IT security staffing budgets are expected to rise by 14%.

RSA chief Arthur Coviello stated that, “never have the attacks been as targeted, with the aim of breaching one organisation as a stepping stone to breaching others.” Cyber-attacks have reached scary levels of sophistication, and the demand for ethical hackers and other ‘cyber ninjas’ has been on the rise.
