Why Read This Report
Throughout the year, Forrester analysts engage in hundreds of discussions with vendors and end users about data security and privacy. Analysis of B2B survey data from Forrester's Forrsights Security Survey, Q2 2013 and additional data from our data partner CyberFactors provides another layer of insight into the state of data security and privacy today and in the future. This data-driven report outlines budgeting and spending, technology adoption plans, and other key breach, data protection, and privacy trends in North American and European organizations for 2013 to 2014. Understanding these trends and their implications will help security and risk (S&R) executives examine and adjust as necessary their own resource allocation for data security and privacy.
