Information security risks have dramatically evolved, but security strategies haven’t kept pace. While many organizations have made significant investments in security, their adversaries are doing better and they’re doing it faster.

This years’ Global State of Information Security Survey 2014 shows that detected security incidents have increased 25% over last year and the average financial costs of those incidents is up nearly 20%. But what does this mean? The security strategies of yesterday aren’t working against highly skilled adversaries using techniques and technology of tomorrow.

In the 16th edition of the survey, we gathered more than 9,600 responses from senior executives across 115 countries and virtually every industry. Of those, nearly 550 Canadian respondents participated.  Here are some key insights of how Canada compares to the rest of the world in information security.
