Data protection and data enablement in the age of “everything online”.
Organizations today accumulate enormous amounts of complex information from an increasing number of sources.
Data is one of the most valuable assets an organization has, created, compiled, collected, stored and disseminated in everything from day-to-day operations to regulatory compliance. The amount of data that organizations collect and process is exponentially growing. IDC Research predicted that the volume of digital data will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 42% over the decade of 2010 to 2020.
With so much data in circulation there is always a risk of a data leak or breach, exposing confidential information to unauthorized parties. The reasons for how data breaches happen might sometimes be traced back to intentional attacks against a weak security perimeter. However, it can just as easily result from human error, flaws in a company’s nformation infrastructure or a scope creep in business intelligence.
