I am an Information Systems Honours student at the University of Cape Town. My research aims to establish the perceived severity of the cybercrime problem in South Africa, and how organisations are protecting themselves. Your participation will allow me to compile current cybercrime statistics for South Africa.
The survey targets professionals with knowledge of IT and information security in their respective organisations, such as yourself. The research is conducted in the form of an online survey that you are kindly asked to complete.
