CSI/FBI survey 2005

The latest Computer Security Institute/Federal Bureau of Investigation security survey is packed once again with interesting statistics and insightful commentary. With responses from around 700 US respondents, this is one of the most reliable surveys. Security awareness gets several mentions. "The vast majority of respondents view security awareness training as important. However, (on average) respondents from all sectors do not believe their organization invests enough in it." The survey does not explain why this might be, unfortunately. I wonder if it might be related to the lack of understanding of security awareness amongst senior management?
