"Protecting Corporate Assets: Securing Data and Proprietary Information"
As more and more companies allow their employees to work from home, require them to travel for business, and provide them with laptops, the resultant portability of sensitive and proprietary data presents serious security risks. This study was designed to develop a cross-industry perspective on how companies prioritize data and proprietary information security in their day-to-day functions. The study outlines the methods employed both within and outside companies to ensure training, tools, and procedures are in place to protect sensitive information in an age of increasing employee and hardware mobility.
This study will assist those IT professionals, managers and directors seeking to benchmark their own Data Security functions and to understand how other organizations train their employees, contract outside relationships and prioritize actions during a security breach.
