Welcome to the Storage magazine eNewsletter for September which includes an eye-opening – and potentially controversial – article suggesting that for many organisations, data protection policies are little more than a ‘money pit’. According to a Forrester survey earlier this year, organisations “focused on threats rather than their data and do not have a good handle on understanding and controlling sensitive data.” This fragmented approach to data security exacerbates vulnerabilities and challenges, to the point where 96% of respondents believed a more ‘unified approach’ would benefit them.

Gary Hayslip, Chief Information Security Officer to the City of San Diego, sums it up nicely: “One of the greatest challenges a CISO faces involves data. It is incumbent upon our team to understand not only how our stakeholders work, conduct business and use data, but also what applications the stakeholders require; what data is important to them; and which data if compromised would critically impact the ability of the organisation to conduct business.” Amen to that.
