A study released by Sila Solutions Group and the Ponemon Institute found securing access to sensitive information is a major issue for companies despite data breaches and security incidents, according to a Yahoo Finance news release. Of 650 respondents, 70% reported privileged users are accessing sensitive data even if it is not related to their job. The study also found respondents expect that number to increase over the next 12 to 24 months. Meanwhile, MediaPost reports a Deloitte Consumer Privacy in Retail Survey found 47% of respondents feel they have “little or no control over their personal data,” yet 71% will share their data in exchange for discounts or better pricing.
