IOUG has recently published their valuable research on Data Security. Here are some suprising results from the report:
1- Over the past year, percentage of the company's, whose data been breached, compromised, or tampered was increased.
I just wonder what will be the future of this increase every year. Will it be 50%, who says their data has been breached, compromised, or tampered 20 years later?
2- IT Security spending over the past year was decreased.
I'm not sure that economic crisis is an adequate reason for this situation. I can't imagine the crisis when my company's 20 billion custemer information will be stolen.
3- Company's are less aware of sensitive information in all databases across organization.
I cannot even comment on. What may be the reason companies are less aware of their sensitive information?
4- Outsource percentage of database administration functions was increased.
Maybe not suprising, but considerable
5- Percentages of activity monitoring on production databases were desceased.
I cannot stand. I need some fresh air...
