Fifty seven percent of businesses in the Middle East have faced two or more virus attacks in the past six months, according to a survey done by internet security firm, Trend Micro. “Ninety two percent of all attacks have a web component and organizations need to ensure that they are protecting their business from loss of data, credibility and money,” Chris Moore, the managing director of Trend Micro Middle East said in a release.
“Employee behaviors, lack of awareness, and inadequate protection is putting ME businesses at risk,” he added. The survey of around 800 executives during the Gitex exhibition this year also found that 14 percent of the respondents have no confidence in their company’s IT security software.
