Everyday, we make choices that can affect privacy and the security of information we are dealing with, either online or offline. Information security, defined as the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information, is becoming more and more a priority for individuals and for companies, too.
The process of keeping financial, employee and other data safe is not without challenges. Do companies understand the real threats? Are they doing enough? The global certification leader DNV GL – Business Assurance has tried to find the answers.
DNV GL – Business Assurance, supported by the international research institute GFK Eurisko, has investigated how companies in different sectors in Europe, North America, South America and Asia deal with information security.
The survey was conducted in July 2015 and investigated how DNV GL – Business Assurance customers manage a key topic like information security, the initiatives they implement and the obstacles they meet. The survey of nearly 1,200 professionals from the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors1 highlights that the focus is high. The need to deal with information security issues comes as no surprise, and companies are making significant efforts to achieve it, despite encountering difficulties in setting concrete goals.
