Chief information officers see employee training as the top way to beef up their corporate information security, according to a survey by IT staffing firm Robert Half Technology.
The survey, which is based on 2,400 CIOs with 100 or more employees, is instructive because it reflects how internal workers are still the largest security risk.
Fifty four percent of CIOs said they would boost training on security issues.
Second on the list (45 percent) was vetting third parties with access to corporate data followed by hiring IT security personnel (41 percent) and multifactor authentication.
Robert Half Technology noted that CIOs need to screen potential hires for certifications, an interest in how culture and security go together and communication skills. Here's a look at the steps CIOs plan to take via Robert Half.
