More on Security vs Risk

So, I was reading some survey and came across this bizarre, mind-boggling (maybe even 'mind-numbing?') picture:


How can security be THAT disconnected from risk? Can somebody explain this to me? (Please don't explain by stating "crappy survey methodology" - I can pull this one myself, thank you very much :-))

Mr Hoff, can you help here? :-)

UPDATE: I have a full PDF of the report; can email if interested!

UPDATE2: a lot of fun discussion inspired by this post is here.

UPDATE3: more discussion here where the model "(strategic = risk) vs. (tactical = security)" is used.
