Increased Cyber Threats, Increased Stress on IT Staff

IT professionals are being pushed to deliver new digital projects, according to a survey. In 2013, owing to security issues, 79% had been pressured to roll out new projects even if projects were not ready.

54% of IT professionals felt more pressure to protect their organizations in 2013 as opposed to 2012, and 58 percent believe pressure in 2014 will be greater. 58% cited customer data theft as a top concern — "more than reputation, fines and legal action combined."

"According to the survey the most worrying effect of potential security breaches for respondents was customer data theft, which 58% cited as a concern — more than reputation, fines and legal action combined."
