The Global State of Information Security® Survey

The Global State of Information Security® Survey, an annual, worldwide study by PwC, CIO magazine, and CSO magazine, aims to inform and stimulate the debate on how businesses are facing today’s security challenges. Over the years, thousands of executives around the world have taken the time to share their views with us.

This year’s survey was conducted online from February 1, 2013, to April 1, 2013. The results are based on the responses of more than 9,600 executives including CEOs, CFOs, CISOs, CIOs, CSOs, vice presidents, and directors of IT and information security from across 115 countries.

By region, 36% of respondents were from North America, 26% from Europe, 21% from Asia Pacific, 16% from South America, and 2% from the Middle East and Africa. The respondents were spread across a range of industries, with further details by region and industry, available on request.
