The annual Global Information Security Survey

The 2009 annual Global Security survey with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) conducted against the backdrop of the most significant global recession in decades, has produced some fascinating results for New Zealand CIOs. This year covered all aspects of information security, from budgets to personnel, technology, processes and incidents.
CIO NZ and PwC have analysed the global and local data to provide readers not only with the global insights, but with specific reference to local trends and findings within this context: are you employing the same technologies and processes, under the same budgetary constraints and feeling the effects of the economic downturn in the same way? (Please see related article on the global results of the survey ‘Why security matters NOW’.)

The insider’s guide to information security

The 2007 Global State Of Information Security Survey conducted by CIO, CSO and PricewaterhouseCoopers is the largest security survey to include New Zealand companies. The survey reached out to nearly 10,000 organisations from 119 different countries.
As such, it represents a comprehensive view of security issues, practices, budgets and concerns around the globe and gives us an in-depth context in which to view our domestic results.
