Banks Suffer Highest Rate of Security Incursions

Financial institutions deal with more security breaches than other industries, study finds.

Database software developers in the banking and finance industries reported more security breaches than database developers in any other industry polled in a recent survey.

Overall, in a poll of 700 database developers working for U.S.-based corporations and software development firms, 12 percent said the databases they support experienced a security breach within the last year, a survey from market research company Evans Data reveals.

The survey, which was conducted in December, 2001, classified security breaches under three general definitions: a computer virus that successfully corrupts or erases data in a database, a human error that leaves a database corrupted, or an unauthorized break-in to a database. Of those methods of breach, computer viruses were the type most commonly identified as being at fault, according to Joe McKendrick, an analyst with Evans Data.
