Security is always a concern for IT professionals, and media news reports of breaches and leaks, combined with internal threats, have further increased worries.
A recent Tech Pro Research survey focused on IT security. The survey attracted 244 respondents from around the globe and from organizations of all sizes. The resulting report, IT Security: Concerns, budgets, trends and plans, focuses on the key findings from the survey.
Budgets were a hot subject. Overall, 41 percent of survey respondents said they will increase their IT security budget next year. This is a 16 percent increase compared to the number of budgets that rose in 2013. In addition, only 11 percent of all respondents said they plan to decrease their security budget next year.
