Thales is pleased to present the findings of the 2016 Global Encryption Trends Study, independently conducted by the Ponemon Institute. We surveyed 5,009 individuals across multiple industry sectors in 11 countries - the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Brazil, the Russian Federation, Mexico, India and Arabia (which is a combination of respondents located in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates).
The purpose of this research is to examine how the use of encryption has evolved over the past 11 years and the impact of this technology on the security posture of organizations. The first encryption trends study was conducted in 2005 for a US sample of respondents. Since then we have expanded the scope of the research to include respondents in all regions of the world.
In our research, we consider the threats organizations face and how encryption is being used to reduce these risks. Mega breaches and cyber attacks have increased companies’ urgency to improve their security posture. This is reflected in this year’s findings as more companies embrace an enterprise-wide encryption strategy—which has increased from 15 percent in FY05 to 37 percent in FY15
