DATA LOSSMarch 29, 2011
The results of a recent study by cybersecurity vendor McAfee indicate that six in 10 companies pick and choose which data breaches to report and half of those that have experienced a breach make changes to fix and protect their systems from future breaches, reports The Huffington Post. The study surveyed over 1,000 senior IT professionals from Brazil, China, India, Japan, the Middle East, the UK and the U.S. about the challenges of protecting corporate data. According to the report, outsourcing and mobile devices are expected to pose even greater challenges to data security as they become more prevalent.
