On a general level, it becomes clear that different countries have different perceptions with respect security and privacy concerns. For example, while many countries may have legislation in place to cover issues such as computer crime and misuse, or data protection, others may lack concern on such issues. Security may be a primary concern for citizens of countries having a reliable technological infrastructure; on the other hand priority may shift from security to infrastructure development for citizens belonging to developing countries. The above factors highlight the technical influences; in addition a range of societal values may also influence attitudes. As the internet is known to cross all borders and jurisdiction, protecting information and maintaining a sense of security is truly a challenge faced by many countries, especially their government authorities.
