This IDC study enables security professionals to successfully implement all the components necessary for a data security program. To that end, enterprises should adopt a formal approach toward identifying and assessing the risks to corporate data assets. By taking a systematic approach, enterprises can support their risk assessment process and identify key vulnerable areas that increase the possibility of data loss or theft and may require additional attention."Data growth continues to skyrocket and global pandemic combined with economic and political uncertainties has further complicated the process of systematically developing and maintaining a data-centric security program," said Robyn Westervelt, research director, IDC Security and Trust group. "Technology alone will not solve the issue of protecting critical data. To be successful, organizations must ensure that data owners and other stakeholders are engaged and policies and controls are adequately aligned."
