IOUG Member Ray Schonert Contributes to the IOUG Security Study and Wins an iPad

IOUG ResearchWire has announced the winner of the annual Security Study Sweepstakes recently - Ray Schonert, a DBA with Northrop Grumman Corporation. "It's great to win the iPad. I've always wondered if these drawings were random and now I know they are," said Schonert, who has been an IOUG member since 2004.

"Security is something we focus on every day because the cyber threat is only getting worse as time goes on," Schonert pointed out. "It's another piece of the IT pie that technology workers have to keep up with and continue to stay committed to keeping abreast of."

This year's survey IOUG ResearchWire Data Security Survey was conducted in May 2010 by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc., and sponsored by Oracle Corporation.

Every visitor to the IOUG site can download the Executive Summary here. In addition, the full 28-page research report detailing the survey results by key areas - data privacy, access control, activity monitoring and auditing, and operational security - is available to IOUG members.

IOUG members can access the full 28-page report on the same IOUG web page using their user name and password. Scroll to the bottom of that page for quick instructions.
