Survey: Network attacks double at financial firms', 8.6.04


Admitted attacks on computer networks at global financial institutions more than doubled in the last year, resulting in more monetary losses. Yet a quarter of those companies say they're not spending more on new security systems.

Those are the findings in the 36-page 2004 global security survey [PDF] by New York-based Deloitte Touche.

IT executives from 100 companies were interviewed for the report, and 83% acknowledged their systems have been compromised in the past year, compared to only 39% in 2002. Of those surveyed, 40% said attacks against their networks resulted in financial loss. Despite that, 25% reported flat security budget growth.


The survey did show some positive trends.

Among them, financial institutions showed improvement in complying with regulations, as two-thirds (67%) of respondents indicated they have a program for managing privacy compared to 56% last year. In addition, 69% felt that senior management is committed to security projects needed to address regulatory requirements.

"We shall need compromises in the days ahead, to be sure. But these will be, or should be, compromises of issues, not principles. We can compromise our political positions, but not ourselves. We can resolve the clash of interests without conceding our ideals. And even the necessity for the right kind of compromise does not eliminate the need for those idealists and reformers who keep our compromises moving ahead, who prevent all political situations from meeting the description supplied by Shaw: "smirched with compromise, rotted with opportunism, mildewed by expedience, stretched out of shape with wirepulling and putrefied with permeation.
Compromise need not mean cowardice. .."

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"
