Our recent research study, “2024 CISO Report: The Current State of Data Security, Governance, and AI,” revealed that 73% of CISOs struggle to manage their data scattered across various platforms and cloud environments, making it difficult to maintain visibility, control, and ensure compliance. This new finding has drawn attention to a critical gap in many organizations’ data privacy and security frameworks— one BigID is perfectly poised to fill.

You Cannot Secure What You Cannot See

In today’s digital landscape, data is often dispersed across multiple locations, creating significant challenges for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs). This data sprawl obscures the overall data picture, leading to difficulties in identifying and prioritizing security threats. Without clear visibility, enforcing access controls and security policies becomes challenging, increasing the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.

On top of this, meeting data privacy regulations requires robust data governance. However, the proliferation of data across various environments makes it difficult to locate, classify, and manage sensitive information effectively.
