Executives lack security awareness

A study in the UK reveals that most executives are unaware of security threats and only 37% of businesses had an accurate inventory of where their data was stored.
Nearly half of UK executives don't know how many security incidents their business has had to cope with in the last year, according to research.
PricewaterhouseCoopers' Global State of Information Security Survey, which questioned more than 7,000 business leaders, showed that 49 per cent of UK execs were unaware of incidents.
Getting a handle on data storage should be one of the first steps in securing a business.
