Re: IT security should step up
It is a fact that most organizations don't know where their sensitive structured or unstructured data resides, says new Ponemon study. This is a very sensitive issue with the ongoing current theft and malicious activities revolving around delicate data that goes on. It is important that organizations keep track of all their data using IT security measures that are latest in the market. IT security measures should be upgraded so as to be able to secure the users' sensitive and delicate data.
