IT security a problem, says FBI

It's done a survey

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

People are frustrated with the "non-stop barrage" of intimidation they get from computer security troublemakers, says the FBI.

It's annual survey of computer crime contains some other stunning revelations, like the fact that most of the companies it surveyed had encountered problems with viruses, spyware and so on.

Most of the 2,066 firms in the survey knew nothing about Infraguard, "a joint effort by the FBI and industry to educate and share information related threats to US infrastructure."

Well now you do.

Most had reported their problems to "law enforcers" and where happy with the response they got.

And they were all keen to attend seminars hosted by the FBI, apparently.®
