Malicious Intent

WatchGuard released some statistics yesterday that really got me thinking.  They found that 38 percent of the web contains malicious code.  Additionally, 77 percent of websites with malicious code are legitimate sites that have been hijacked by hackers, which is directly attributable to why 57 percent of data theft occurs over the web. Executives need to make sure the IT departments are proactively focusing on security.  Simply getting something to work is not enough.  Assessments are key to understanding where companies risk resides.
