While confidence in our collective IT security appears to be down in 2010, there doesn’t appear to be much change in store in the way IT organizations plan to defend themselves.

A survey of 450 employees at Fortune 1000 companies conducted by FishNet Security, an IT services firm that specializes in security, found that while the vast majority of IT organizations think the number of data breaches will increase in 2010 due to the rise of mobile computing and social networks, few appear to be changing the way they think about security technologies in order to better respond to the threat.

That may be because of limited budgets and a lack of awareness of new security technologies. But whatever the reason, it appears IT organizations are awaiting the inevitable crisis in the face of constrained security budgets.
