According to a recent international on-line security awareness audit, companies are still failing to tackle their information security risks. The Security Awareness Index (SAI) showed that organisations are not investing sufficiently in developing and implementing security policies to protect their information assets, nor in training and educating staff.
The Information Security Awareness Index is divided into two parts. Firstly, it asks chief security officers questions to determine how companies rank in implementing policies and procedures. Secondly, it allows the same officers to test employees' actual knowledge and awareness by e-mailing a survey to any number of employees. It then compiles responses to produce an SAI Security score that compares their security awareness with others in the same industry as well as all respondents.
