About this talk

Based on the findings from 2021 Thales Data Threat Report, the global pandemic has had a significant impact on data security with accelerated cloud migration and increased remote working. Many organizations were unprepared for these security challenges. In fact, according to the report only 20% of IT professionals said their security infrastructure was very prepared for the effects of the pandemic. Even with the challenges over the past year, security professionals were already adapting to better secure and protect access to data in the cloud. According to the report, 82% of IT security professionals are concerned about the security risks of employees working remotely and nearly half reported an increase in cyberattacks over the past 12 months. The 2021 Thales Data Threat Report is based on a survey of more than 2,600 security professionals and executive leaders worldwide conducted by 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. Discover what your industry peers have reported, what they are doing, and what 451 Research recommends to better protect your organization.
