IT decision makers admit they need to do more to protect data
"Most IT leaders recognise the importance of data protection – but more than a quarter of IT decision makers (ITDMs) at UK firms admit they could do more to protect corporate data.
Almost 90% of CIOs/CISOs, 80% of ITDMs and 74% of knowledge workers said their ability to protect corporate and customer data is vital or very important to their company’s brand and reputation, according to a survey commissioned by security firm Code42.
However, 28% of ITDMs said they do not do enough, or are not sure that they do enough to protect corporate data, the 2016 Datastrophe Study found.
This will be of great concern to knowledge workers, at least a third of whom believe the business they work for may be at risk of a data breach that could go public in the next year.”
