According to a recent survey announced by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) at this year’s InfoSec conference in London, regulatory compliance will be the top business issue affecting enterprise information security professionals in the next 12 to 18 months.
ISACA said the increase in regulations, data breaches and new technologies, such as cloud computing and the rise of personal technology in the workplace, are accelerating complexity and risk.
Tony Noble, a member of ISACA’s guidance and practices committee, said: “The survey shows more clearly than ever that information technology cannot be managed in a vacuum. From the growing number of government regulations to consumer privacy concerns and hacktivist attacks, enterprise IT assets are being challenged in ways that go far beyond the server room.”
