It's 3 a.m. Do you know where your data is?
Mar 14, 2013
Government IT professionals ranked data loss as the biggest security concern in a recent survey conducted by SolarWinds, with cloud security and privacy coming in a close second. Those concerns match well with operational security priorities, which also put data loss and cloud security in the top two positions. The threats from personally owned mobile devices in the work place ranked below external threats as a concern (12 percent to 30 percent).
Fewer than half of the respondents (47 percent) said they felt more ready to respond to security challenges than a year ago.
The online survey included 160 respondents in nine countries, about 60 percent of them working for local, state or federal agencies in the United States and Canada.
