The Annual Data Exposure Report 2022 shines a spotlight on the risk of cloud technologies and the need for better Insider Risk education. The Great Resignation and the hybrid-remote workforce is creating urgent data exposure challenges. Findings from the report reveal that cybersecurity teams are facing unprecedented challenges when it comes to protecting sensitive corporate data.
Three compounding trends vastly increase the risk to organizations:
- Continued adoption of cloud technologies, the role those technologies play in data exposure and security’s lack of visibility into them;
- The impact of the Great Resignation and departing employees’ theft of IP;
- Ongoing misunderstanding and poor communication between stakeholders at the board, security leadership and security practitioner levels.
