Defending Data: Turning Cybersecurity Inside Out With Corporate Leadership Perspectives on Reshaping Our Information Protection Practices
In 2014, the inaugural Defending Data report highlighted interesting trends associated with managing and protecting an increasingly ephemeral perimeter; a shift in security policies and procedures; and the evolving role of security officers. This year, there is more recognition of damage from insider threats; a lack of familiarity with an organization’s entire data landscape; and a rising appreciation for security among corporate executives.
To track these and other developments influencing corporate security strategy, Nuix engaged Ari Kaplan Advisors for the second consecutive year to interview 28 corporate security officials.
The survey found:
- There is greater focus on insider threats. 71% of respondents reported having an insider threat program or policy
- Although almost all respondents (93%) reported being able to identify their critical value data, only 69% said they knew what people did with the critical value data after they accessed it
- 82% of respondents said their organizations had a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy, compared to 69% of respondents who had one in 2014
- 93% of respondents claimed human behavior was the biggest threat to their organizations’ security, up from 88% in 2014
