Overview: This set of findings from a security study on data leakage revealed that many companies do not have security policies and that security policies that are in place are often ineffective. This analysis provides additional justification for the initial survey findings, which reported that employees around the world are putting corporate and personal data at risk.
The survey included more than 2000 employees and information technology professionals in 10 countries that Cisco selected because of the differences in their social and business cultures. The new findings offer insight into how the use and effectiveness of security policies affect data leakage.
As the lines blur between work and home, data loss has become one of the most prominent concerns for businesses around the world. Creating, communicating, and enforcing sensible security policies is critical to protecting corporate assets.
