The research was conducted with two audiences

Audience 1

Global Company Security Managers

Research was carried out via an online survey, between March 20 and 31, 2023, with a total of n=1,775 physical security respondents in large companies across 30 countries and 13 languages. A quota-based random selection process was used within each country by industry and each country's data was weighted to have an equal proportion in the global results (with the exception of the U.S. to reflect their larger economy). Respondents collectively boasted a combined global revenue exceeding USD$20 trillion.

Online research on April 17, 2023, with a total of n=200 Global Institutional Investors. A quota-based random selection process was used to select them by type and geography. Respondents have a sum of over USD$1 trillion in AUM (assets under management).
