    According to a recent data security survey commissioned by Infinigate UK and GFI Software, two-thirds of UK companies have reported data breaches within the last two years, with 37 per cent of all attacks found to be made deliberately from within a company.

    The survey, which was conducted in April of this year by the technology market research company, Vanson Bourne and consists of responses made by companies with 200-1000 employees across various public sectors, concluded that 54 per cent of respondents agreed a lack of management buy-in is a key challenge for IT security; followed by 48 per cent stating insufficient internal resources and skills.

    Furthermore, 43 per cent also revealed budget limitations as a main IT security challenge, with 29 per cent of interviewees claiming challenges also arise due to a shortage of appropriate solutions.
