Data loss remains a serious issue worldwide, and data loss prevention is an important tool for companies to reduce the risk of a breach. The Ponemon Institute conducted a seven-nation survey of 1,000 IT decision makers in financial services, healthcare, government, manufacturing, and retail organizations, to develop benchmarks for data loss prevention incidents, visibility, and maturity. The primary goal of this research was to understand and compare the number of data protection incidents that organizations deal with on a daily basis, and the factors that influence this. Specific goals were to:
Identify the number of daily incidents due to data loss monitoring.
Understand the key causes of fluctuations in the number of incidents.
Develop industry benchmark figures, including averages per day and high, medium, and low ranges, for each of five vertical industries
