Why is the U.S. failing to develop and implement strong data security protections?
A new report finds that the U,S.
has the worst data security performance of any advanced economy and the top-five worst performers in data protection for global corporations.
The report, compiled by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), says the U in particular needs to work more closely with international companies to develop a data security strategy, and has called on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to create a comprehensive framework for data security.
The report is the latest to paint a bleak picture of the U’s data security situation, with the U not only failing to implement stronger data protection standards, but also failing to adequately protect its own data.
The U has long been criticized for failing to secure data in the wake of the NSA revelations.
The NSA revelations have left many companies, governments and corporations concerned about data privacy, with many companies now scrambling to protect their data.
The data security report, released Monday, found that the United States has the second-worst data security in the world.
The top five worst performers are the U of A, followed by the U., Germany, France, the Netherlands and Australia.
The United States’ ranking is particularly troubling because of its status as the top exporter of information technology to the world, and it is one of the largest Internet providers in the developed world.
