After a carefree summer, here´s just the thing to help you prepare for the terrors of the modern workplace: a recent OECD study entitled Computer Viruses and Other Malicious Software: A Threat to the Internet Economy, which estimates that the average business spends between 6 and 10 percent of its total technology budget addressing issues arising from malware.
This comprehensive 250-page paper explores the scope and economics of malware, and discusses some strategies that governments, organizations and individuals can use to combat it. This might include Bill C-27, the government’s controversial Electronic Commerce Protection Act, which is still in Committee.
