Is Your Company Worried About Terrorism?

Most CIOs apparently are not.

Employee blunders and hardware and software failures are more of a worry for IT directors than the much-hyped threat of terrorism when it comes to disaster recovery planning, according to a new survey.

Half of the 877 IT directors interviewed for the research cited human related issues – accidental errors and malicious behaviour – as the main threat to the security of their business. Almost two-thirds also cited hardware failure, while 59 per cent said software failure and viruses are a significant threat.

When you look at it statistically, who can blame them? I think for most companies, especially small ones, terrorism is not a concern.
