Survey: About Half Of IT Pros Feel Their Company's Web Applications Are Not Secure

This Marketwire press release announced some dismal statistics about the security of companies' Internet applications. A survey ("Making Web Applications Hacker Proof") by eMedia and Cenzic of about 400 IT professionals found that:

  • A majority of IT professionals think their Web sites might not be secure,
  • 63 percent of companies test the security of their Web applications quarterly or less often
  • 28 percent of respondents were unaware that their company had a data breach

Geez. This highlights the fact that too many companies and too many corporate executives do not take data security seriously. It highlights the fact that consumers' (e.g., employees, contractors, former employees, and customers) sensitive personal data is at risk.
