The State of Information Security Awareness:
Trends & Developments
Global Findings from the Ponemon Research Institute and Security Innovation
How does your organization stack up?
Organizations of all sizes face serious challenges with online payment card security and protecting confidential information. Technical environments frequently change, best practices continually evolve, and industry standards are regularly updated - all while hackers and other criminals diligently develop new ways to cause trouble.
To better understand the extent that organizations are educating employees about information security standards, Security Innovation commissioned a research study from Ponemon Institute, who surveyed a global sample of 3,089 IT and security professionals who are influential in their organization’s PCI DSS compliance and/or audit activities.
Key themes and trends are listed below, but numerous other key findings are described in the report that provide detailed insight into the state of security awareness programs.
