This chapter presents the findings of an investigation on current security practices in Cypriot organizations, including enterprises and public sector divisions. In order to gain knowledge on the deployed security technologies by organizations, a survey was conducted and concluded in late 2010. The survey primarily examined compliance of enterprise current security policies and procedures with ISO 27001 security guidelines. A research analysis has been performed and identified that security mechanisms and the management of information technology (IT) resources may be improved on a number of aspects. Based on the research findings, an assessment of the viability of ISO 27001 in Cyprus is given as well as recommendations on the further deployment of ISO 27001.
