Dependance on networks and PCs susceptible to network attack or viruses is much more widely distributed in the west. I suspect that the ability of western computer users to get help or to solve their own problems also going to be quicker and more authoritative.
Although its been a long time since I lived overseas, I can't imagine that things have changed that much. Most of the software is pirated, the support for it is non-existant. Although the staff may be very knowlegable, the knowlege is spread much more thinly. If a tech in an organization is sympathetic to the terrorist cause, there may not be anyone else available to
diagnose the problem introduced. Remember: social engineering is an essential component for many
I would imagine that more and more 3rd world organizations are going to regard computer/network presence as a status symbol, without regard to the risk it implies.
Turn-key solutions orginating from the west will include computers where computers were never depended on before in the third world. Do these folks have a generation of folks who have used computers for the last 15 years, and at least know the rules about computer security (but maybe don't always practise.) No - except for the upper echelon of management who may have been sent to college in the West.
