Global TMT Security Survey Report



The fifth annual Global Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) Security Survey, conducted with 138 TMT companies around the world, indicates that TMT companies are generally holding steady as compared to the prior year on their information security activities, budgets, governance, and reporting.

Yet the threats to Information Technology (IT) security are on the rise and the impact of security incidents are ever more significant. TMT organizations are not coping with the evolving environment: More than half (52 percent) of respondents to the DTTL study indicate that their security expenditures are either falling behind or catching up to what is expected.

The survey also reveals the top five high threats envisioned for information security in 2012 are:

  1. Mobile devices (34 percent)
  2. Security breaches involving third parties (25 percent)
  3. Employee errors and omissions (20 percent)
  4. Faster adoption of emerging technologies (18 percent)
  5. Employee abuse of IT systems and information (17 percent)

While mobile devices are considered the number one security threat for 2012, it is not the device itself that poses the threat, but more so the sensitive data that it carries.
