Data breaches impacting U.S. businesses and government agencies spiked 40 percent last year, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center. Ransomware attacks skyrocketed 6,000 percent last year as well, according to IBM.
Yet the 600 IT decision-makers surveyed by Broomfield, Colo.-based security vendor Webroot Inc., with assistance from Wakefield Research, seem disturbingly unconcerned. Indeed, 72 percent of them say they’re completely or almost completely ready to protect themselves from threats, and 89 percent are very or somewhat confident that someone on their staff could successfully address an attack if they experienced one.
“They’re probably a little overconfident,” observes Charlie Tomeo, Webroot’s vice president of worldwide business sales.
