CIO's fear IP Network security

Despite high levels of concern about the security of IP networks, companies are planning to press ahead and roll out the technology regardless, according to research from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).

Over two thirds of the 236 global chief executives and chief information officers questioned said that network security is a major concern when it comes to switching to a totally IP network. But the same proportion were planning to deploy the technology anyway. Security concerns rank more highly than worries over the cost of network installations, and wireless network protection is seen as a key risk area. Viruses and worms are still seen as the main problems, but the respondents see these and most other threats decreasing over the next two years. However, they expect targeted attacks from internal staff, either espionage or sabotage, to rise.
