(Click to download study) Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the results of The Human Factor in Data Protection. Sponsored by Trend Micro, this research focuses on how employees and other insiders can put sensitive and confidential information at risk and what organizations are doing to reduce this risk.

According to 78 percent of respondents, their organizations have experienced a data breach as a result of negligent or malicious employees or other insiders. Employees losing laptops or other mobile devices, mishandling of data at rest and in motion and malicious employees or other insiders are the root causes of many of these data breaches in organizations.
