Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) April 14, 2010
With growing concerns of sophisticated cyber attacks from overseas putting U.S. critical infrastructure at risk, Lumension commissioned Clarus Research Group to conduct the industry’s first “Federal Cyber Security Outlook for 2010” study. According to the study, which reveals the current state of endpoint security and operations in the US Federal government, the top security risk facing Federal IT in the year ahead is the growing sophistication and volume of cyber attacks. Federal IT resources are challenged in meeting these risks due to a lack of collaboration across IT operations and security, growing complexity of integrating technologies, and increasing compliance audit burdens.
In this Lumension webcast, C. Edward Brice, senior vice president of worldwide marketing and Dr. Ron Faucheux, president of Clarus Research will provide an in-depth dive into endpoint management and cyber security challenges facing federal IT professionals.
In this webcast, you will learn:
- The biggest security challenges and risks facing Federal IT decision makers;
- How the increasing audit burden is impacting security, organizational bandwidth and IT resources; and,
- What Federal agencies can do to secure against cyber threats and protect sensitive information.
“Lumension’s Federal Cyber Security Outlook 2010 Survey shows that nearly two thirds of IT decision-makers in the Federal government think critical U.S. IT infrastructure is under a ‘high’ cyber security threat from overseas attacks,” said Pat Clawson, chairman and CEO of Lumension. “That being said, Americans have long taken pride in our ingenuity and spirit of innovation, but we also need to take steps to protect our ideas, inventions and innovations. We must have a national sense of purpose when it comes to preventing cybercrime from taking away opportunities for economic growth.”
The Federal Cyber Security Outlook for 2010 survey was conducted by Washington, D.C.-based Clarus Research Group and commissioned by Lumension. The survey included interviews with 201 federal government IT security decision makers and influencers who work in federal government agencies and departments that deal with national security – such as defense, foreign policy, and homeland security– as well as agencies and departments that are not dealing with national security affairs.
