Ignorance is bliss
"There were some interesting disparities in the survey results: while 40 per cent of IT staff said their organisation had seen a data breach involving the loss or theft of more than 1,000 customer records or other business information in the last two years, only 23 per cent of comms and marketing staff agreed. This indicated that either sampling was skewed or that IT staff are not always ‘fessing up to marketing when something went wrong."
Since when are marketing & comms bastions of honesty? Those numbers seem spot on to me. IT is telling the truth and marketing & comms are denying everything they can. If they can't, they'll get legal involved.
