THE GLOBAL STATE OF INFORMATION SECURITY SURVEY 2013

Source: CICA

Posted on November 7, 2012

Information security has always been a high-stakes game. One that demands a smart strategy, the right technology moves, and an unblinking eye on adversaries. Find out how executives view the scope and efficacy of their security policies, strategies and technologies in this report. You can also gauge how you stack up against your peers using a customized tool to benchmark your own organization's security profile.

This PwC survey had over 9,300 respondents involved in information security from 128 countries, including CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CISOs, CSOs, VPs, and directors of IT and security.

Key findings (North America):

• Security budgets are almost flat in North America, but certain strategies show gains.

• Responses from North American organizations indicate that they are the best in the world at staying on plan when it comes to IT projects.

• Based on their survey responses, they are the least likely to defer capital or operational projects, and the deferrals that do happen tend to be shorter than those in other regions.

• And North American firms are the least likely to cut budgets for capital and operational projects.

• Other areas in which North American respondents indicate superior performance when measured against peers include the vital areas of mobility, social media, and the cloud. While progress in these realms still lags the adoption rates of the technologies, North America ties with Asia for the lead in cloud security strategy and is tops in mobile and social networking security - the latter by a considerable margin.
