Organizations in Canada and the U.S. express similar concerns about IT security breaches and rate security as a significant ongoing priority, according to separate research studies completed by marketing intelligence firm Televerde.

The company recently completed a Canadian survey on behalf of Quebec-based Channel Management International (CMI) 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.

Neither American nor Canadian companies feel confident in their attack response and prevention measures.

According to Televerde, one in four respondents expressed an immediate need to strengthen IT security, and none rated their ability to protect against external and internal threats as a strong point.
