Kearney, Yankee Group and Datamonitor as well as the world renowned Global Services-Tholons Study which looks at the outsourcing industry's emerging global cities. However, it is only in the last couple of years that Egypt has really made an impact in these, highlighting that Egypt is no longer one of the industry's best kept secrets and that it is firmly establishing itself as a global hotspot for business process outsourcing. Egypt has a large base of highly talented, qualified and easily available human resource in the field of Information Technology, unfortunately this is also increased the amount of hackers and affected the level of information security defense.
