What's on the Minds of Security Professionals?

There are no surprises in this Information Week survey of 400 security professionals. The biggest driver of security is regulatory compliance, followed by prevention of unauthorized access as a close second.

But security professionals don't live by regulatory compliance and access management alone. Other top issues in the survey were cutting security costs and managing risk.

Along the same theme, here are four security holes in telecommuting from CSO Online, which I'm sure also keep IT security people in enterprises on their toes:

1) Careless use of Wifi and accessing unsecured networks
2) Letting family and friends use work-issued devices
3) Altering security settings to view Web sites that have been blocked by the company
4) Leaving a work-issued device in an unsecured place
