Of the survey participants, 76% have employed third-party experts to audit network security practices. However, only 35% conduct these audits every year. About 27% hire a third party to audit every two years and 14% do so every three years or more.
A new study out this week examined the attitudes of IT executives and network administrators about the role of outsourcing with regard to security and compliance activities. Conducted by Amplitude Research on behalf of VanDyke Software, the study quizzed 350 participants. While many expressed reservations in some areas-claiming offshoring of security jobs has a negative impact on network security-the vast majority believe that hiring outsiders to conduct security audits is a good use of IT dollars.
