Survey: Despite dangers, IT personnel sleep well By Bill Brenner, News Writer 27 May 2004 | SearchSecurity.com Security practitioners know hackers are working overtime to attack their networks; that they're relying on outdated and unreliable security protocols.

Of 337 IT managers and administrators surveyed April 26-30, 32% worry about "the next virus/worm" and an equal percentage fear "a security breach to the enterprise's network."
