Telus/Rotman IT Security Survey


Last year I commented on an excellent survey of IT Security practices that was conducted by Telus and the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.  The survey for 2009 is now online.

Some interesting findings from 2008:

  • 4 percent of government organizations reported financial data loss due to information security breaches
  • 1 in 11 government organizations have lost confidential data
  • IT security investments directly impact (reduce) security incident reports
  • breach costs average 23 percent higher in Canada vs US

If you are involved in information security in a Canadian public organization or private-sector company, please click here and fill out the survey.  Your information will be help to provide a complete picture of information security practices in Canada.
