CSO survey: Companies lack plans in case of terrorist attacks
The survey of 476 chief security officers and senior security executives found that 60% believe that a terrorist attack is likely in Boston or New York, which are hosting the Democratic and Republican political conventions this summer, respectively. While 63% of CSOs said their companies have planned for conventional attacks such as bombings or hostage taking, 61% said they haven't planned for unconventional attacks using chemical, biological or nuclear weapons, according to the magazine.
The online survey of CSO subscribers was conducted between April 27 and May 18, 2004, and has a 4.5% margin of error. CSO subscribers were asked their opinions on a number of issues, including terrorism, politics, IT security policy and purchasing decisions.
