EiQ Networks, a company that offers security, risk and compliance solutions, recently conducted a survey, "What Keeps IT Pros Up at Night," which shows that regulatory compliance to protect corporate data continues to be one of the greatest challenges that organizations across all industries face. Meanwhile, the top three information security nightmares are an external data breach for financial gain, failing an audit and the loss of intellectual property, according to respondents.
