Data theft is the primary concern for IT decision makers [1], surpassing ransomware attacks [1] [2], according to a recent survey conducted by Integrity 360 [1] [2]. This survey included 205 IT security decision makers from various industries and organization sizes [2].


The survey revealed that over half of the respondents (55%) identified data theft as their biggest concern. Phishing ranked second at 35% [1], while ransomware came in third at 29% [1]. CIOs and CTOs also expressed greater concern over advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks compared to ransomware [1]. In response to these findings, Integrity 360 recently opened a new security operations center in Dublin [2], Ireland [2].


These findings highlight the significant impact of data theft on IT decision makers. It is crucial for organizations to prioritize data protection measures and invest in robust security systems to mitigate the risk of data breaches. The opening of Integrity 360’s new security operations center in Dublin demonstrates their commitment to addressing these concerns and providing enhanced security solutions. As technology continues to advance, it is imperative for IT decision makers to stay vigilant and adapt their strategies to combat evolving threats.
