In a recent benchmark study conducted by the Ponemon Institute on The State of Risk-based Security Management, we asked 1,320 IT security, operations and risk management professionals in the US and UK about their attitudes towards security and risk management.
We recently compared the data from public versus private sector and found some very interesting results. For example, in the public sector, 55% of the respondents agree that risk management creates a culture of informed choice compared to 48% in the private sector.
Another area where the government sector shows higher maturity than in the commercial space is in their believe that risk-based security methods help security professionals align the security mission with business objectives – 65% vs. 60% for in the private sector.
