In the wake of Sept. 11, U.S. businesses have abruptly reassessed their ability to deal with security threats, according to a survey of 100 business executives conducted by Kroll, a New York City-based risk consulting company.

Prior to the terrorist attacks, information protection and employee integrity were the top security priorities. Since then, concern with emergency planning, business resumption planning and physical security has increased dramatically.

Now, 86% of the respondents view emergency planning as "important," as compared to 34% before Sept. 11, and physical security is considered "important" by 89%, up from 40%.
