SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
nCircle, the leader in information
risk and security performance management solutions, today announced
the results of a survey commissioned by nCircle and conducted by Dimensional
Research. Over 270 IT security and business professionals
participated in the online survey conducted between November 8 and
November 19, 2012.
When asked "Are you concerned that your company may be more vulnerable
to attack during major holidays such as Christmas and News Year's ", 57%
of respondents said "no", but 61% of security professionals said "yes".
"In spite of the increase in malware and viruses around every major
holiday, attacks can happen anytime," said Andrew Storms, director of IT
security operations for nCircle." IT security professionals live in a
constant state of vigilance - they know attackers are always looking for
an advantage. You can't build a good security program overnight, but if
you already have one in place you're probably just as safe on Christmas
as you are any other day of the year."
