Over half IT pros believe business is losing cyber battle

Businesses are losing the battle against state-sponsored cyber attacks and things are unlikely to improve in the short term, according to a survey of senior IT security professionals.

This was the view of 58% of nearly 200 respondents, polled by Lieberman Software at Black Hat USA 2013 by Lieberman Software.

While nearly 63% of respondents think a state-sponsored attacker will attempt to breach their organisation in the next six months, 74% said they were not confident that their own corporate network had not already been breached by a foreign state-sponsored hacker.

Most respondents said they believe that the hacking landscape is going to get worse over time.
