PWC Global Security Survey

PWC has released its 14th global survey of the state of security for 2012. This survey is based on the responses of more than 9,600 CEOs, CFOs, CISOs, CIOs, CSOs, VPs and directors of IT and information security from 138 countries.

It shows that the level of confidence in security activities is high, with 72% of the respondents indicating they are  very confident or somewhat confident. On the other hand, the survey shows a degradation in certain security activities, which the report characterizes as troubling. Particular areas that have shown the biggest declines over the past three years are business continuity/disaster recovery planning, annual reviews of privacy policy and accurate inventories of data locations. For the latter, it could be that it is becoming impossible to describe the locations of data, since it moves around so quickly.

For the results of the survey, check out the PWC website.
