Internet Security Not That Important To Many Companies

from the sounds-good,-but... dept

A new study shows that while most companies know that computer security is important very few are doing much to improve their computer security. The study points out that many companies are simply trying to survive right now, and anything that appears as a cost, when the risk is seen as low isn’t going to get done. Right now, most companies think the real risks from a computer attack are pretty low. Of course, with the number of stories that have come out recently about ways companies think they’re making themselves secure, when really they’re just causing more problems, maybe it’s for the best that companies don’t waste their money right now.
