The Focus is Back on Security
Like many folks who spend the bulk of their days in front of a computer, I suffer from a common condition: information overload. My news aggregator fills up hourly with useful info that I'll never see because I can't possibly keep up. But today this item leaped out at me --> Deloitte: Financial institutions making identity and access management tools their #1 priority. The article states:
According to Deloitte’s 2010 annual security survey for global financial institutions, entitled “The Faceless Threat,” identity and access management was identified by survey respondents as the industry’s top security initiative for 2010. Among 19 different types of initiatives, 44 percent listed this as their top initiative; it is also a significantly higher priority for larger organizations with more than 10,000 employees (63 percent).
Security budgets also appear to be reversing the current trend of cost-cutting. More than half of the survey’s respondents (56 percent) indicate that their information security budget has increased. Additionally, there is a significant drop, as compared to last year, in the number of respondents who state that “lack of sufficient budget” is one of the major barriers that their organization faces.
