We all know that security is the hot topic in IT for 2014. Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report shows a 62 percent increase in the number of data breaches in 2013 from 2012. Earlier this year Cisco released its quarterly survey, in which respondents were asked what they feared from the new security threats. Over 80 percent answered that they (IT) actually felt secure with the technology that they had in place. Unfortunately, that answer is contrary to what is really happening. Feeling secure is no substitute for staying alert. The IT department still needs to make sure that it is doing everything in its power to keep its infrastructure protected. If the antivirus isn’t working properly, one can’t fault the end user for getting a virus.
