  • Considering that many organizations today are fully dependent on information technology for survival, information security is one of the most important concerns facing the modern organization. 'Security can be complex as you enter the international arena. It is essential to take cultural differences into account while managing security in an international environment' Paul Raines, Chief Information Security Officer, OPCW, United Nations.
    This study attempts to reveal some of the impact of culture, regulations on security approach; and also why a security certification is not well adopted in French companies in opposition to other countries like Japan or US. The central objective is also to give an answer to what many security professionals agree (or not) that culture and local rules/regulations are something we have to deal with in order to preserve security.
