In the past year almost a quarter of enterprises (22%) experienced a security breach and 21% have faced mobile device security issues, according to a global survey of more than 3,700 IT professionals who are members of ISACA. The survey also identified that in the next 12 months, data leaks (17%) and inadvertent employee-mistakes (17%) and incidents relating to personal devices (13%) accounted for almost half the issues.
The survey released in conjunction with the new ISACA "COBIT 5 for Information Security" can help enterprises reduce their risk profile by managing security appropriately. COBIT 5 for Information Security, available from the ISACA Website is published with the objective of allowing enterprises to:
- Reduce complexity and increase cost-effectiveness
- Increase user satisfaction with information security arrangements and outcomes
- Improve integration of information security
- Inform risk decisions and risk awareness
- Reduce information security incidents
To learn more about COBIT 5 for Security, listen to the podcast I recorded with Tom Field of BankInfoSecurity last week. During the conversation, I shared the essential facts that the practitioner needs to know.
