IDC surveyed 817 CIOs and IT decision makers across 11 countries in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region in January 2021. The purpose of this survey was to understand the security policies and the key security challenges faced by organizations across the region. IDC looked at the current and planned security priorities of organizations, their level of security maturity, the overall threat landscape, and the top security investment areas.
This survey spotlight report provides a high-level view of the key security risks and concerns that CIOs across the META region currently face or foresee in their cloud initiatives.
"Adoption of cloud services across META is on the rise due to various factors, including local datacenter buildouts and the COVID-19 pandemic. However, many organizations across industries and company segments will still face data security risks and concerns as they execute their cloud initiatives." — Senior Program Manager for Software and Cloud Manish Ranjan, IDC META
