EY- Security Survey 2009London, 9 November 2009 – Reprisals from recently departed employees and a lack of adequate security budgets and resources are becoming major concerns for senior IT professionals, according to the 12th annual Ernst & Young 2009 Global Information Security Survey pdf, 863.8kb .The survey, which canvassed nearly 1,900 senior executives in more than 60 countries, revealed that 75% of respondents are concerned with possible reprisals from employees who have recently left their organizations. Furthermore, 42% of respondents are already trying to understand the potential risks related to this issue and 26% are already taking steps to mitigate them. Paul van Kessel, Global Leader of Ernst & Young's Technology and Security Risk Services, comments: “With the economy still in recession, employees that are made redundant may feel resentful towards their previous employer in a number of ways that may affect the smooth operation of an organization. Increasingly, the employer's IT system has become a common target and data theft is also prevalent. It is paramount that companies undertake a specific risk assessment exercise to identify their potential exposure and put in place appropriate risk-based responses.”
