Jail for Data Loss CEOs, Say E-Crime Congress Survey Respondents

An international survey of 104 security professionals conducted by Websense at this year’s e-Crime Congress reveals that 93% of respondents believe companies are under more pressure to protect against data loss due to the current economic climate.

Furthermore, security professionals also unanimously believe that businesses exposing consumers’ confidential data through a serious data breach should be punished for security negligence.

  • Nearly a third (30%) think that CEOs and board members should face imprisonment for exposing consumers’ confidential data, (representing an increase of 5% from last year’s survey)
  • 62% believe companies should be fined
  • 68% call for compensation for consumers affected
