Advanced Threats Touch Two-Thirds of Enterprises

Thirty percent of enterprise security managers say their companies are vulnerable to APTs.

InformationWeek: In a new survey conducted by market research firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), nearly two-thirds of enterprise information security managers said their companies have been the target of advance persistent threat (APT) attacks. In addition, 72 percent of those surveyed expected APTs to get worse in the future, and 30 percent said they are vulnerable to APTs.

IT security managers are using automated tools more often to protect against these attacks. However, many do not do enough training, which can be a key in preventing attacks that rely on social engineering techniques for effectiveness.
