If analysts have predicted correctly, the global cybersecurity market will soar to $101bn by 2018 and $170bn by 2020. This growth should come as little surprise to anyone in the industry: as the more data is stored and sent digitally, a breach becomes more likely.

Yet despite clearer rules around data protection and more money being spent on preventing a breach, it would be reasonable to expect the number of reported incidents to plateau or, preferably, decline. Yet overall this isn’t what we’re seeing as human error remains a considerable risk to most organizations.

Approximately a quarter of breaches are caused by human error or employee negligence and given that the associated costs continue to rise, logic dictates that a large proportion of corporate spend would be allocated to solutions designed to prevent this problem.

In this webinar, we will question whether a new approach to data security needs to be applied: one that recognizes data security can’t be tackled in silo and instead a holistic more strategic approach must be taken to protect and secure data throughout its lifecycle.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Is a new approach to data security, considering the human element, needed and realistic?
  • Are humans considered at the point of design of security tools?
  • What can organizations do to protect their corporate data, their business reputation and reduce associated fines?
