Ernst & Young's IT security survey shows struggle to control cloud computing, social media and mobile risks

Many CIOS and chief information security officers are struggling to adapt security practices to a changing environment that includes cloud computing, social media and tablets , according to a survey of 1,850 such IT pros.

Those that did have a defined security architecture pointed to the Open Group Architecture Framework, the ANSI/IEEE 1471:ISO/IEC 42010 standards, and other references such as defense department frameworks defined in the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

A major complaint from 43% of respondents is that they can't find the right people with the right skills and training to handle information security jobs. And when asked what threats or vulnerabilities have most increased risk over the last 12 months, the answer at the top of the list was "careless or unaware employees," followed by "cyber attacks to steal financial information."
