IT Pros compromise ethics to pass audits, FireMon says

IT Pro Today

More than a quarter (28 per cent) of IT experts, polled during the Infosecurity Europe conference in London, admitted to compromising ethics to pass audits, a new survey by security management vendor FireMon shows.

This represents a six per cent jump from five years ago, when the same question was asked.

In its report, FireMon says this is most likely because of the growing complexity of networks IT experts need to handle, as well as all of the disparate technology and security.

All of this leads to IT experts being under ‘immense pressure’.
