The key to online security is for companies to focus on securing data rather than infrastructure and block all information that is not intrinsically safe, according to industry experts.

The key to online security is for companies to focus on securing data rather than infrastructure and block all information that is not intrinsically safe, according to industry experts.

Gene Hodges, chief executive of US-based IT security provider Websense, has said that concentrating on locking down devices, networks and infrastructure has failed to make corporate assets safe, according to IT Week.

Mr Hodges told reporters. "You need to give up on trying to secure end points and concentrate on data."

He added that making use of data loss protection technology was important to prevent companies leaking information.

According to the technology news provider, chief executive of network management supplier Cisco John Stewart agreed, adding that such was the volume of online malware that "organisations would do better to only permit actions which are intrinsically safe". He added that everything else should be questioned.

The advice follows the NTA annual security report published last week, which suggested that 60 per cent of UK websites were vulnerable to cybercriminals.
