Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the findings of the 2016 Global Trends Study, sponsored by Thales e-Security. We surveyed 5,009 individuals across multiple industry sectors in 11 countries - the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Brazil, the Russian Federation, Mexico, India and Arabia (which is a combination of respondents located in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates).
The purpose of this research is to examine how the use of encryption has evolved over the past 11 years and the impact of this technology on the security posture of organizations. The first encryption trends study was conducted in 2005 for a US sample of respondents. Since then we have expanded the scope of the research to include respondents in all regions of the world.
