Schwartz MSL recently surveyed 50 IT Pros for their thoughts on the U.S. government’s role in mandating that corporations get tougher on keeping hackers and criminals off networks. The results were split fairly evenly with an equal amount saying the government should do more and the rest saying no to government intervention.
Full results from the survey are below.
Question 1: Should the U.S. Congress pass legislation that mandates stricter network security regulations on companies?
RESULTS IT professionals are split on this issue— 52 percent answered Yes, while 48 percent answered No
Question 2: If the recent cyberbill had passed, would mandated regulation and auditing ultimately make corporate networks more secure from internal and external threats?
RESULTS Another split on this question, with a slight lean at 54% Yes and 46% No
Question 3: Has your employer been breached as a result of a cyber attack?
RESULTS 84 percent said No and 16 percent responded Yes
Question 4: Should the government should be involved in helping secure critical infrastructure such as SCADA systems, electric power plants, water treatment plants, etc.?
RESULTS 88 percent of respondents agreed with this statement
