We are pleased to present the results of the 2013 State of the Endpoint study sponsored by Lumension® and conducted by Ponemon Institute. Since 2010, we have tracked endpoint risk in organizations, the resources to address the risk and the technologies deployed to manage threats.
Last week I presented the results of our latest study entitled, "The State of IT Security: A Study of Utilities and Energy Companies." Sponsored by Q1 Labs, this research revealed that utilities and energy companies in our study are more concerned about preventing downtime that stopping a cyber attack. In addition, a majority of respondents said that compliance with standards such as NERC CIP is not a top priority. Most surprisingly, only 16 percent of respondents believe that their organization's existing controls are designed to protect against exploits and attacks through the smart grid.
