How susceptible are Chinese companies to security breaches? Are they more vulnerable than U.S. businesses? Could interfacing with the IT systems of your Chinese business partners put your own IT operations at risk?
InformationWeek magazine and Accenture - a management-consulting and technology-services company - provides answers to these questions in their China-U.S. Information Security 2005 research report. The study documents threat perceptions, security practices, and investment plans based on the responses of 700 Chinese and 2,540 U.S. business-technology and security professionals.
Key report areas breakdown China and U.S. experiences and strategies and cover:
Perceived threats to the enterprise
Attack successes and their consequences
Widespread security strategies and planned IT investment
Security vendor perceptions and expectation
Use this report to identify common security approaches and to benchmark and develop your company's security strategies based on security standards and anticipated security directives of companies in the U.S. and China.
