Website security ignored

#121 Many companies are confessing that their websites were attacked more frequently within the past year. A survey released last week by the Computer Security Institute, states 95 percent of respondents experienced more than 10 Web-site incidents during 2004, up from 5 percent in 2003. Roughly 700 computer-security practitioners in U.S. companies, government agencies, medical institutions, and universities responded to the survey.

Experts say the huge increase occurred because websites provide a gateway for thieves to steal data. Criminals know that companies have vast budgets for network security and often ignore their websites, unaware that the information they provide allows access to more sensitive data.
