Survey Finds Compliance to be Top Security Concern

Posted May 10, 2011    Peter McCalister

This week ISACA released results from its Top Business/Technology Issues Survey, which revealed that issues such as regulatory compliance, governance and information security management continue to top the list of enterprise IT concerns.

Fueled by the challenge of the global economy and greater numbers of government mandated standards and regulations, particularly around privacy issues, compliance is the issue most top of mind, with 53 percent citing privileged access monitoring and segregation of duties as their biggest concern.

To most of us in this space, these results come as no surprise. In addition to added regulations, the seemingly endless numbers of high profile data breaches are potentially keeping more CTOs and CIOs up at night. Add to that the latest and greatest technologies beginning to dominate the enterprise – mobile hardware and applications, cloud computing, virtualization, to name a few – and you have a significantly more complicated network environment, and exponentially increased associated risk.

The good news is that as enterprises begin to pay more attention to privileges and access, they are more enthusiastically embracing the principal of least privilege as it relates to improving their overall security posture. With more and more threats and privacy breaches generated from inside the enterprise, securing the perimeter within becomes more of a central and critical focus.
