In March of 2012, Varonis introduced an online survey to explore organizational adoption of current data protection practices and confidence levels, and how data protection practices correlate with data protection activities.
The results may surprise you. While over 80% reported that they store data belonging to customers, vendors, & other business partners, only 26% reported being very confident that data stored within their organization is protected.
Over 200 people responded to a selection of 13 questions including:
- Do you store data from customers, clients, vendors, or business partners?
- How confident are you that the data stored within your organization is protected?
- How confident are you that you know where all data containing information about customers, vendors, and other business partners resides?
- Do you monitor actual access activity on file shares and SharePoint? (file opens, creates, moves, modifies, deletes)
