Security leaders across the industry know they need a more nuanced strategy than simply looking at good versus bad actions, and they know their teams will never actually reduce risk while living in the forced “maintenance mode” of policy-based tools. The world has changed, and security needs to evolve to keep up. Volume II of the 2021 Data Exposure Report examines how respondents who have a policy-based tool, like DLP, have addressed data protection in the last year.
Key findings from this report:
- More than three-quarters of organizations have suffered a data breach despite having a DLP solution in place
- More than half of organizations continue to use a network DLP solution to mitigate insider risk despite the acknowledgement that the network perimeter has dissolved
- More than half of security professionals continue to rely on DLP and CASB solutions that do not provide visibility into untrusted destinations such as personal email and private cloud environments
