Data Protection: Prioritizing Regulations & Guidelines

The amount of corporate data produced, stored and exchanged across the digital universe increases every day. And regulations and guidelines are quickly following suit to enforce how organizations manage and protect customers’ data. As a result, the task of safeguarding data within any organization is a significant one. Download our research study to understand the level of importance organizations place on data protection regulations and industry guidelines, while gaining insight into how these can be prioritized within your organization.

Key findings from the study include:

  • Failing to manage and protect data properly could put data at risk of being exposed and potentially breached. 28 percent of organizations admitted they have been hit by a data breach in the last 12 months.
  • Delayed breach notification could intensify corporate challenges with regulatory compliance. Despite EU GDPR’s 72 hour breach notification requirement, 13 percent of the surveyed IT professionals said it takes between one and twelve months to notify regulatory authorities.
  • In the past organizations have not been as proactive or invested heavily in adhering to NIST and ISO data protection guidelines. However, organizations may be changing their mind set for the better with 88 percent of the surveyed IT professionals describing these data protection guidelines as either ‘very important’ or ‘important.’
