During the RSA Conference 2013 and Infosecurity Europe 2013 conferences, Proofpoint surveyed a total of 620 professionals with C-level, IT, security and risk/compliance titles (505 of these at the RSA Conference, 115 at Infosecurity Europe) that visited Proofpoint’s conference booth. Using a Web-based survey, respondents were asked about a variety of concerns around spear phishing, advanced targeted attacks and data breaches. Both surveys asked the same questions. This slideshow features the key findings.
