Project cost is often too high estimated COMCO study: slight improvement in the security situation compared to 2007 Dortmund, 03.02.2009 - most companies refer to their current internal network attack blocker as insufficient and therefore see the need for action. However, the proportion of companies that describe their current status at least as satisfactory, opposite is according to a comparison survey of COMCO AG 2007 about a third on 32 percent rose. "" Currently consider it to more than four out of five of the over 300 respondents medium-sized and large companies as difficult "or even very difficult", the potential internal security threats effectively stop. Even two percent are more than two years ago. According to critical, also their judgment on the issue fails, how they would describe their current status in the internal security conditions.
So, 32 percent indicating positive or satisfactory conditions would prevail. These were only 23 percent two years ago. At the same time the share of enterprises where very inadequate security internal protection conditions, has declined from 28 per cent to 16 per cent in 2007. This indicates a growing need for internal security, because ultimately, no company can be let off this sensitive topic", judge COMCO Executive Michael Kaiser. Unlike two years ago barely the aspect plays a role in the current description of the cause, that was contrary to staff too much, control of the corporate culture. This is indicated only by 29 percent as the reason. Instead two-thirds, 7 percent more than two years ago, complain that the required resources lack for an improvement of relations.
More IT managers as the cause for the difficulties (62 to 57 per cent) mention also a to casual handling of internal data security compared to 2007.
