A new global survey of more than 1,500 IT and IT-security professionals looks at how organizations understand and respond to data security threats today, Informatica Corporation states in a press release on a new Ponemon Institute study. The study found that the location of sensitive or private data is “the foremost concern of today’s IT-security professionals”—even above hacker attacks. The survey also found that organizations are “in the dark regarding sensitive data, with only 16 percent knowing where all their sensitive structured data resides,” the report states. Other concerns include migration to new mobile platforms, worker or contractor mistakes and outsourcer management of data.
