This IDC study analyzes a model constructed by IDC Canada to calculate the number of incidents of lost and stolen confidential personal data occurring in Canada, with a forecast out to 2015. The information in this study will help security vendors and their clients plan for these future threats and avoid the negative consequences that come with these breaches.
"Canadian organizations need to prepare more for the oncoming increase in exposed confidential personal information," says David Senf, vice president, Infrastructure Solutions Group. "As a nation, we have underinvested in security training and technologies relative to the United States."
