Today, just about anybody in an organisation can share, access, and disseminate information easily. Organisations have come to depend on it – in fact, it is enormously empowering. At the same time, the workforce has become increasingly mobile and the ubiquity of high-speed Internet access, smart mobile devices, and portable storage means that ”the office” can be anywhere.
As a consequence, it has become more difficult than ever for organisations to prevent the loss of sensitive data. According to the Ponemon Institute*, more than 250 million personal records have been exposed by data breaches since 2005, with each breach costing an average of US$6.6 million to the unfortunate organisation.
Clearly yesterday’s security perimeters aimed at securing IT network cannot address today’s data security challenges and it’s time to shift the focus to securing the data itself.
