The State of Data Protection [INFOGRAPHIC]

In the age of big data, businesses are creating, processing, storing, and sharing information at an alarming rate.  A significant amount of the data is highly sensitive or confidential and should be properly safeguarded.  It’s unnerving to think about the possibility of our own personal information sitting on servers, possibly unencrypted and open to everyone.

We hope that companies are complying with SOX, HIPAA, PCI, and other regulations but, as we know, hope is not a strategy – so we decided to take a hard look at the current state of data protection.

In March of 2012 we surveyed over 200 individuals in the IT community, asking about their current data protection practices and confidence levels, and how data protection practices correlate with data protection activities.

The results may surprise you. While over 80% reported that they store data belonging to customers, vendors, and other business partners, only 26% reported being very confident that data stored within their organization is protected.
