While it may be startling to some it comes as no surprise to those working in the IT security field that the executives most influential in security decision making are not those who are most supportive of security spending. This tends to have the perhaps inevitible effect of insufficient funding for IT securiity to be as effective as it could be.

The following data is from a conference board survey on corporate security of over 200 senior corporate executives. Not included in the respondents were security directors, CISOs and risk managers.
