London, 4 November 2010 — Less than a third of global businesses have an IT risk management program in place capable of addressing the risks related to the use of new technologies, according to Ernst & Young's 13th annual Global Information Security Survey released today. In spite of the rapid emergence of new technology, just one in ten companies consider examining new and emerging IT trends a very important activity for the information security function to perform.

A significant increase in use of external service providers and business adoption of new technologies such as cloud computing, social networking and Web 2.0 is recognized to increase risk for 60% of respondents. Yet, in spite of this, less than half (46%) intend to increase their annual investment in information security.

Paul van Kessel, Ernst & Young Global IT Risk and Assurance Leader, comments: “Technology advances have provided an increasingly mobile workforce with seemingly endless ways to connect and interact with colleagues, customers and clients. These advances represent a massive opportunity for IT to deliver significant benefits to the organization but new technology also means new risk. It is vital that companies not only recognize this risk, but take action to avoid it.”
