Cybersecurity faces roadblocks

New study from the Ponemon Institute shows barriers to cyber security

Last month, Ponemon Institute released part one of their installment “Exposing the Cybersecurity Cracks: Canada” where, after surveying over 250 IT security practitioners in Canada, it was revealed that 60 percent of Canadian companies do not believe they are equipped to fight cyber-attacks and data theft. Now, Ponemon Institute uncovered the second part to their two-part study entitled, “Roadblocks, Refresh and Raising the Human Security IQ.”

According to the report, better communication and information about cybersecurity, investment in skilled personnel and technologies, and adoption of security measures can reduce the risk of online threats.
