Secure Digital Solutions frequently surveys our colleagues in information security to learn of trends, progress, and issues to be addressed in our field.Conducted over fourth quarter 2011 and first quarter of 2012, this assessment features responses from 122 corporate leaders in information security and privacy.
The survey asked respondents to answer an anonymous questionnaire on their company’s current information security programs. The questionnaire examined key components of an information security and compliance program, including: understanding of requirements, policy and procedures, expertise within program, monitoring, assessment and remediation, and control adoption.
Results of the study were compiled into an overall view of how both large and small corporations view their information security programs. The study reveals that eight out of ten respondents claim an established control framework addressing information security and privacy. The report provides a snapshot of how how organization size, regulatory responsibility, program maturity, and investment spending are related.
