69% of office professionals in the UK hoard data
"Over three-quarters (77%) of IT decision makers worldwide are now more concerned about the impact of data hoarding than they were a year ago.
New research from Veritas was conducted among 10,022 global office professionals and ITDMs across 13 countries to look into how individuals manage data.
The study found that 82% of ITDMs admit they are hoarders of data and digital files, and 83% believe that their company is a data hoarder.
Most (86%) ITDMs say the amount of data their company stores would increase the time it takes to respond to a data breach. Moreover, 83% of ITDMs and 62% of office pros admit they retained items that could be harmful to their employer or their own career prospects. Personal files make up quite a bit of the ‘junk’ saved with 96% of ITDMs admitting to saving unnecessary personal files.”
