Security practices at UK firms far from perfect, reveal IT security professionals

A survey of 201 IT security professionals in the UK has revealed how existing cyber security practices at organisations are far from perfect, thereby raising questions about their preparedness for GDPR.

IT security professionals at a number of enterprises are prioritising the security of certain applications and services, thereby leaving other areas exposed to cyber-attacks and malware injections.

The survey, conducted by security firm VMware, has revealed how IT security professionals at enterprises are frustrated with the lack of understanding among leadership teams about the importance of cyber security as well as the lack of available funding for urgent projects.
