For some reason, the SANS Newsbites didn’t use my comments on the item below, so here it is to fill the Friday blog:
US Government Agencies Say Incidents Are a Daily Occurrence (November 10 & 11, 2009)
A CDW-Government survey of 300 US government IT professionals found that 44 percent of agencies noted an increase in the number of security incidents over last year. Thirty-one percent of respondents said their agencies experienced at least one cyber security incident every day. The top areas of concern reported by respondents were malware, inappropriate employee activity or network use, managing access for approved remote users, and data encryption.
Pescatore – I’m really worried about the 69% who *don’t* think they are having daily security incidents. Basically, a day without a security incidents is a day without any Internet connectivity and with no human beings using any computers that have any software running on them.
