Investment Levels Support Value of Security The IT professionals we surveyed recognized the importance of security across delivery models and for both internal and external implementations. They back up their concern with a high level of investment in security as part of the overall investment in cloud initiatives. For example, when averaged across our sample group, almost half (mean equals 48 percent) of the investment in cloud initiatives is related to security. Bad News Taken in Stride We were curious about whether high-profile security breaches reported in the news had any impact on cloud decision making. When asked to recall recent newsworthy breaches or attacks, one- quarter (24 percent) mention the high-profile public security breach of the Sony* PlayStation* Network. Nevertheless, most (70 percent) say the breaches they recall have no impact on their decision to move forward with cloud initiatives. One-third (30 percent) are on hold while they deepen their evaluation of their security plans and controls.

What recent high-profile breaches/attacks have you heard about on the news or in trade publications? Why don’t these high-profile breaches cause more anxiety? The allure of cloud computing is very powerful these days. It may be that cloud computing is seen as so strategically important that IT professionals are willing to move forward with a thoughtful, risk-based approach.
