Security and Enterprise 2.0

Here's an interesting story from the KPMG Digital Insider site that deals with security concerns around Web 2.0 tools entering the workplace. They story includes some interesting data points:

"According to an upcoming KPMG survey of corporate executives on Web 2.0, 86 percent of respondents "agreed" or "strongly agreed" that Web 2.0 tools will help their companies share knowledge more efficiently; 75 percent believe it will help to foster innovation."
Sounds good. 86% is actually a higher number than I would expect. And the next part:
"But 51 percent of respondents felt that security is the chief barrier to Web 2.0 adoption at their organizations. Just 47 percent are creating governance programs to guard data from unauthorized external access."
I'm not surprised by this number but would be curious to see what the other responses were. I wonder if their survey asked about user adoption. I would assume user adoption would top the list but apparently not.
