HOUSTON, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A survey by DNV GL – Business Assurance of 112 companies around the world shows steady progress toward making information security a normal part of everyday business operations, as opposed to a tactical defensive job owned exclusively by the IT department.
The study queried 1200 professionals within the participating companies; data collection and analysis was performed by international research institute GFK Eurisko.
"Despite economic challenges we are seeing a broad 'next step' occurring in the way companies in all sectors approach data security," says Faith Beaty, President of DNV-GL Business Assurance, North America. "Key indicators are the degree to which top management is involved, and the growing mindset that information security is an organizational priority, not just a technical problem."
