The irony, however, is that companies aren’t investing enough in data security to let them sleep soundly. Less than 20 percent of CISOs believe their organizations are effective at breach prevention, according to a 2018 survey by the Ponemon Institute. And 78 percent of enterprises admitted to a breach in the last year, according to the CyberThreat Defense Report 2019 (download here).
Preventing data breaches requires more than hardening your network perimeter. Insider threats are just as insidious, due to the constant threat of hijacked user accounts. And traditional lockdown security approaches do nothing to combat such threats, while slowing down and frustrating your employees and customers.
In other words: when it comes to data security, businesses can’t afford to do business as usual.
