CIOs must scrutinise the security of their cloud setup

Research from IT recruitment consultancy Robert Half Technology has brought up an all too familiar story – CIOs are not testing the security credentials of their cloud vendor.

The latest figures suggest that 55% of the CIOs surveyed haven't tested the security procedures that their cloud vendor provides, despite the threat of expensive retrospective action.

An in-depth piece of research from CSC, entitled ‘The CIO Barometer’, has revealed that, for many top IT brass, their personal devices are more useful to them than company-given equipment.
