Despite the perception that companies are increasing security spending, a recent survey of IT security professionals...
found that security budgets are making up a smaller portion of overall IT spending than previously thought. The survey, conducted by Midvale, Utah-based Burton Group, found that security budgets typically make up about 2% of IT budgets. The number is significantly lower than earlier estimates reflecting 6% to 12% of IT budgets spent on security. This week, Burton Group analyst, Pete Lindstrom discusses the survey and why a smaller security budget could be a good sign.
