EU Launches Network Security Campaign

Europe remains woefully unaware of the security risks to computer networks, the European Commission said Wednesday as it unveiled a new awareness campaign called IT Security for Europe.

Companies, individuals and public authorities spend too little on securing their computers and networks, the commission said in a statement. About 5 percent to 13 percent of IT expenditure is spent on security, "which is alarmingly low," the commission said.

"The nature of the threat is changing and so must our response," Information Society and Media Commissioner Viviane Reding said in the statement. EU Launches Network Security Campaign - Security Feed - Blog - CSO Magazine
