Organizations in the U.S. and Canada express similar concerns about IT security breaches and rate security as a significant ongoing priority, according to separate research studies completed by Televerde, a premium provider of outsourced business-to-business customer acquisition solutions and actionable marketing intelligence. The company recently completed a Canadian survey on behalf of Quebec-based Channel Management International and then compared data from U.S. companies with similar demographics to compare and contrast the Canadian results. All respondents were IT professionals with decision-making authority for new technology acquisitions.
Most significantly, the research identified the following common key areas of concern: protecting wireless devices used by employees within and outside of the enterprise that may threaten an organization's data; compliance with security regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); spam filtering and control, among others; and Internet security, including virus protection.
