We polled more than 400 business technology professionals to determine which threats they consider the most serious, how they prioritize their defensive efforts, and what plans they’ve put in place to keep their organizations’ data safe in 2009 and beyond. We find that professionals worry about threats from outside attackers [informationweek.com], but it’s the danger from within the company that really keeps them awake at night. About 52% of more than 400 respondents say they’re most concerned about internal risks, including both accidental and malicious data compromises by employees or business partners during the course of their day-to-day activities.
