However, despite a growing recognition of the need to protect devices, many consumers are struggling to identify, install and use security software.

The study, which questioned 11,819 people from over 27 countries, assessed cybersecurity trends amongst consumers in today’s rapidly-evolving, multi-device, connected world. It found that consumers are using more connected devices than ever before, with the average household now owning 8 connected devices.

Cyber Security agenda created

Kaspersky Lab has entered into collaboration with ITU (the International Telecommunication Union), to co-develop key components of the ITU Telecom World 2012 debate agenda.

Kaspersky Lab with ITU and the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT), will contribute to the agenda for high-level discussions on cybersecurity at the event’s leadership summit. Kaspersky Lab CEO Eugene Kaspersky will deliver a keynote speech at the event outlining the magnitude and global nature of cyberthreats.

Hamadoun Toure, Secretary-General, ITU, said, “Cybersecurity is a major challenge that we have to tackle at the global level. ITU is delighted to be able to draw on the knowledge and experience of Kaspersky Lab to deliver sessions on cybersecurity at Telecom World 2012 next October that will put the spotlight on the critical, wide-ranging and truly global nature of the security issues we face – and how we can best deal with them.”

2011 Top Cyber Security Risks Report

2011 Top Cyber Security Risks Report

HP has published the 2011 Top Cyber Security Risks Report, which identifies the growing sophistication and severity of security attacks and the resulting risks. The report provides the information to help enterprises and governments understand the threat landscape and assess their security posture.

The report also indicates that hacker motivations are continuously changing due to the growing presence of “hacktivist” groups. In addition to changing motivation, advances in attack techniques have led to the increased “success” rate of security breaches. As a result, enterprises and governments are faced with new challenges in assessing and remediating risks.

According to the report, pure vulnerability volume is no longer a valid indicator of the security risk landscape. While newly reported vulnerabilities in commercial applications continue to decline, a large number of vulnerabilities are unaccounted for, and are, therefore, undisclosed to the broader security industry.

“To protect organizations against a wide range of attacks, HP has established a global network of security researchers who look for vulnerabilities that were not publicly disclosed. The intelligence gained from this research group is built into HP enterprise security solutions in an effort to proactively reduce risk,” said Damanjit Singh Uberoi, Chief Solutions Architect & Security Evangelist, HP Enterprise Security Products, HP India.
