Almost a quarter of Irish businesses (24%) are concerned about losing data to the dark web, secretive internet networks that can only be accessed with specialised software.

A survey of more than 100 IT decision makers at businesses in Ireland, conducted by Logicalis Ireland and TechPro, has found that the biggest concerns are are data breaches (70%), human error (60%) and permanent data loss (44%).

Almost three-quarters of respondents said they were more worried about threats to cloud security in 2020, and that these concerns were the leading barrier (56%) for further cloud adoption, ahead of lack of in-house knowledge and skills (38%), budget constraints (37%) and data compliance concerns (35%).

Public cloud (38%) is perceived as the IT environment that poses the greatest risk to security, followed by on-premises infrastructure (31%). Meanwhile, private cloud is considered the lowest risk (6%) among IT decision-makers.

Over half (55%) of Irish businesses do not have an integrated cloud security plan in place. Furthermore, 13% admitted their organisations have no response plans in place for security incidents, with a further 26% only acting reactively as and when incidents arise.

Logicalis Ireland’s Loman McCaffrey said: ‘Of course IT decision-makers should be worried about incidents which could result in data breaches and data loss — it’s good that they are because data has huge value and threats are evolving as quickly as technology is.

‘However, Irish businesses shouldn’t let these security concerns and other challenges — such as lack of visibility, rising costs and lack of in-house resources — delay their adoption of cloud and hinder the potential growth of their company. It comes down to choosing the right solution.

‘As well as maximising security, organisations need to consider platforms that also help to keep costs under control, support staff productivity and enable better management of data, regardless of the cloud environment they’re using.’
