Infographic Of The Day: Information Security

As businesses large and small become more dependent on electronic data, a major focus has shifted towards information security. Businesses are investing more than ever to protect themselves from dozens of security threats, from malware infections to financial fraud.

In a survey of businesses worldwide almost every industry surveyed had experienced an information security-based incident at some point in time. In the survey conducted, respondents covered numerous industries with the majority being from the Information Technology side and making up 10.9% of all those surveyed. This is followed by industries such as financial services, education, the Federal Government, health and manufacturing, in that order, among others. 41% of this mix admitted to having faced a security threat.

From 2007 to 2010, the kind of attacks, although the same, have risen in occurrence.

  • Malware infections are up to 67.1%
  • Phishing is at 38.9%
  • Device theft stands at about 33.5%
  • Other forms have been bots on the network, insider abuse, denial of service, password sniffing, financial fraud and misuse of wireless networks.

Almost 75% of major organizations today encourage staff to use their personal devices to connect to corporate systems. In small businesses, this stands at 61%. As a result, almost 82% of large companies have reported a breach of security by their own staff.

As information security becomes more of a priority in the future, here are a few things your organization can start doing now to protect itself:

  • Implement a privacy and data security plan
  • Conduct an inventory of potential data targets
  • Develop a privacy policy
  • Protect data collected online
  • Create levels of security
  • Plan ahead for data loss

A Network Security plan is also needed, and of course the ability to create strong passwords is a must to better handle security issues.
