Short: Ease overrides concerns of online business

In a recent survey, 57 percent of 1,000 CIOs questioned said they are concerned about security on the Internet, but 75 percent said it has not stopped them from going after business online. They said the convenience and efficiency of business online overrides their concerns, but they are trying to protect themselves with firewalls, encryption, and frequently changing users' passwords. The survey was developed by RHI Consulting and conducted by an independent firm.
