What security breach could cost you your job?

Worth Reading on the current security scneriao.

Virus? Spyware? Loss of sensitive data... what's going to get you a P45 the quickest?

IT bosses are fearful of losing their jobs in the event of a security breach – despite a survey on today which would appear to show they have little grasp on the threats their companies are facing.

Top fear and the fastest route to a P45 is an internet security breach, with 30 per cent of respondents to a recent survey claiming one would cost them their jobs.

More than a quarter (26 per cent) believe the loss of intellectual property due to a security breach would result in their dismissal.

Third biggest concern (cited by 22 per cent of respondents) is their existence of pirate materials on the network, such as MP3 files or illegal software.
