Forty percent of respondents state their physical and IT security functions report to the same executive leader versus 31 percent last year. Further, only 25 percent say the two functions are separate, down significantly from 47 percent in last year's survey. The survey, the largest of its kind, represents the responses of almost 7800 senior executives at companies in more than 50 countries across all industries. Findings also show a sizable information security gap exists between India, the rest of the world and the United States.
