Gartner Identifies Top 30 Countries for Offshore Services in 2008

It's about time that security and privacy be factored into offshoring decisions. My own experience has been that one person's culture impacts his/her grasp of security and privacy. Some cultures have bartering concepts built every aspects of life and therefore may not offer the level of robustness-against-bribery that might be expected. Anyone heard of "baksheesh?"

The Gartner report ranks countries based on 10 criteria, which include: language, government support, labor pool, infrastructure, educational system, cost, political and economic environment, cultural compatibility, global and legal maturity, and data and intellectual property security and privacy.
