Executive Council and Galvin Consulting interviewed 100 US Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) in July and August 2012 about the state of mobile security within their organizations. We also asked participants about their future plans for mobile security technology. CISOs were selected randomly and participated in telephone interviews.

Of the 100 CISO respondents, 23% represent organizations with over $10 billion in annual revenue, 19% are from organizations with $5-10 billion in revenue, 37% represent organizations with between $1-5 billion in annual revenue, and the remainder (21%) work in organizations with less than $1 billion in annual sales.

The firms represent a broad cross-section of vertical industries, including financial services, communications, business services, retail, manufacturing, education, health care, government, energy, media, technology, transportation, engineering/construction, wholesale/distribution, utilities, and aerospace.

All questions that used a 10-point scale designated ‘1’ as the ‘least important’ or ‘least satisfied’ value and ‘10’ as the ‘most important’ or ‘most satisfied’ value.
