Do you know where your data is? Too many companies don't

From Information Age

"Do you know where your data is? How much of it leaves the business each evening on personal devices or is accessed remotely from insecure laptops, or how easy is it to recover deleted data from the cloud? Do you understand the risks involved in implementing (or simply accepting as inevitable) a bring your own device (BYOD) or a choose your own device (CYOD) policy?

Recent research undertaken by Kroll Ontrack indicates that for many, the response may well be ‘no idea’. It highlights that over a 12-month period, one in four workers (25%) lost work data due to the malfunction or corruption of the technology they were using at the time. This was up from just 19% two years before, demonstrating a worrying escalation of the risks created by employee data loss.

Clearly, this situation could have serious consequences for organisations that are unprepared for data disaster and do not have a recovery policy in place. The research highlights that while 68% of work data lost from devices was recovered, almost one-third of all work-related data lost – which could be valuable strategic or financial information or even sensitive communications – was irrecoverable.”
