The majority of UK IT security professionals feel they’re suffering from an image problem amongst fellow workers, according to new research. Nearly two thirds of respondents (63%) feel that their security teams are either viewed as the company naysayers – specifically either ‘doom mongers’ or a ‘necessary evil’ (36%). 

Also, 27% of respondents said company security and security professionals are just something that runs in the background which employees don’t really notice.

The research, which was conducted with 100 IT security decision makers within the UK, revealed that more than a third of respondents (38%) believe that they’re viewed as the ‘policemen.’ Worryingly, when asked if they’d ever experienced negativity towards their team and their work, 13% said this happens ‘all the time.’
