This study*, a refresh of the Forrester Consulting 2017 study: Operationalize Security To Secure Your Data Perimeter, surveyed IT or Security decision-makers in the US, Europe and China. Some findings include:
- Nearly all firms believe that they can accurately define their data perimeter, yet nearly half of all firms still fail to encrypt the majority of their data
- Firms are starting to update their approach to security and take a step in the right direction
- Firms remain challenged by vast amounts of data on their quest to operationalize security
- Firms are making more progress with organizational issues than data concerns
Forrester notes in the study that, "While firms are making important improvements toward operationalizing security, they still have a long way to go to full optimization. An increased focus on customer trust and a move away from dated perimeter approaches are promising developments, but there is still plenty of work to do."
