Asia-Pacific companies are far less concerned about information security than their US counterparts and significantly less able to measure their security return on investment (ROI), according to a new survey from BT. The company’s research – conducted by Vanson Bourne and involving 500 interviews across seven countries and four key vertical industry sectors – found that while 90 percent of US companies are able to measure the ROI of their cyber-security measures, just 51 percent of Asia-Pacific companies can do the same.
