Canadian Security Technology Readiness Intelligence Report – Now available

Security is a fact of life in the modern world. Regulations require security; transport networks depend on security; information technology systems won’t work without it; and it permeates our private as well as our public lives.

The Canadian Security Technology Readiness Intelligence Report was designed to serve as a security benchmark tool in order to provide insight and guidance in current Canadian IT security practices and concerns. The project was initiated by CATA member, CMI, who commissioned the research.

The research brings to our attention that one in three organizations has recently experienced security breaches. This astounding figure shows the degree of threat facing

Corporations today. The reality of the threat is clear.

Equally significant, the research shows us the areas where we need to bolster our defenses: take measures to protect wireless communications; comply with Sarbanes-Oxley regulations; guard against persistent floods of spam; and defeat viruses coming into our systems over the web.

Organizations that pay heed to the Canadian Security Technology Readiness Intelligence Report will be better able to implement effective and appropriate countermeasures, allowing them to prosper in defiance of the turbulence caused by our threat-filled environment.

++ Action Item: Please contact CATA President, John Reid, at johnreid@attglobal.net to receive a copy of the Report and to also obtain briefing on other security initiatives being developed though the CATA members’ network.
