The Irish Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association and UCD have launched the second “ISSA / UCD Irish Cybercrime Survey“. This is a joint project between the Irish Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association and the Centre for Cybercrime Investigation at UCD. Last year was the first time a survey of this nature was conducted to focus on the information security challenges faced by organisations in Ireland. The results of that survey have proven to be very informative, sobering and effective in helping raise awareness regarding information security issues.
With the importance of cybercrime research reinforced by constant publicity of security breaches throughout 2007 and an increasing demand for data on the impact of security breaches, the ISSA and UCD would like your help in ensuring a strong response to this year’s expanded survey.
Irish organisations are invited to contribute by completing a questionnaire either online.
If you would prefer not to use the web-based questionnaire the ISSA and UCD are happy to arrange a telephone interview or can provide an “offline” questionnaire which can be returned by post or email. If you would like to make such special arrangements or have any questions please contact ISSA Ireland.
The 2006 ISSA UCD Cybercrime survey is available for download here.
Please do take the time to complete the survey. The information you provide will be vital in getting an accurate profile of cyber crime activity within Ireland and help us all to develop better ways to combat cyber crime.
