PC Connection recently partnered with industry-leading technology research organization IDG to learn more about today\u2019s top security trends and challenges. In an industry where the situation can change on an almost daily basis, keeping up with the latest security developments is paramount. That\u2019s why we asked IT decision makers from organizations across the country (and a wide variety of industries) what their biggest security concerns are.\nThe results of the survey reveal the types of security breaches that professionals fear the most, as well as the top challenges IT decision makers face in their day-to-day roles.\nWhile threats like malware and attacks on data in the cloud were near the top of the list for biggest security concerns, 42% of respondents named breaches due to employee error or negligence as their greatest concern. Just a few years ago, the traditional notion of a hardened perimeter and soft interior was considered still considered the go-to security strategy. That idea has changed drastically. Today we see a clear need for defenses within the perimeter to detect and protect against threats from both inside and outside the organization. The survey results reveal just how important it is to have a comprehensive security plan in place\u2014one that addresses not just the software or the hardware, but the people and processes behind that technology as well.\nIt\u2019s no secret that data drives the modern organization\u2014it informs business decisions, fuels collaboration with partners, and lets you integrate closely with customers. That\u2019s why it should come as no surprise that 49% of professionals surveyed told us that loss of sensitive data is their top IT security risk. In a modern organization, that data is everywhere\u2014it\u2019s on your network, in your mobile devices, in your data center, and even in third-party cloud data centers. With the importance of data as a business tool, its increasing frequency as a target of malicious attacks, and today\u2019s strict regulatory environment, there\u2019s never been a better time to make sure you have a security strategy in place to reduce the risk of data loss. \u00a0\nOur Security Practice is built around reducing risk.
