While there is a lot of concern over the security of IT equipment within the enterprise, the landscape of networked computing devices is still much more diverse than people realize.
In fact, a new survey of 15,000 IT and business professionals conducted by Mocana, a provider of security software for embedded systems, finds that while there is more awareness of these issues than ever in the wake of some high-profile attacks such as Stuxnet, most IT organizations are not doing a lot to protect these vulnerable systems.
As a result, most of the survey respondents said it’s only a matter of time before something major happens in their industry.
