Westborough, Mass. - According to a recent national survey, 54% of organizations have experienced cyber attacks, with 21% of the cyber attacks causing more than $100,000 in measurable damages, and 11% causing more than $500,000 in measurable damages.The 1st Annual Enterprise Security Survey, generated through an online survey of security decision makers spanning a wide range of industries, indicates that a vast majority of businesses are reliant on the Internet to conduct business and have experienced some form of cyber attack in the past year. Additionally, the survey demonstrates a trend in the change in security spending habits due to government regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.

"It's clear that today's organization is becoming more security-aware as they become increasingly inter-connected with customers and partners via the Internet," says Peter Rendall, president and CEO of Top Layer Networks. "In addition to the recent emphasis on regulatory compliance, new fast-emerging complex cyber threats are driving organizations to formalize their IT security policies and deploy new technologies that help ensure business operations continue uninterrupted."
