Top Data Security Predictions For 2009

Economic Turmoil Will Increase Need For Surveillance, Data Protection Tools

January 9, 2009


Why Read This Report

The economic turmoil in the United States will have resounding consequences for security and risk professionals in 2009. The prospect of laying off an additional 1.4 million workers means that CISOs will clamor for data protection tools to keep their confidential data from walking out the door. These same managers will purchase full-disk encryption and device control technologies and push them enterprisewide while continuing to delay deployment of enterprise rights management (ERM) software. Meanwhile, reforms to the US healthcare system and the illicit leaks of customer personally identifiable information (PII) will escalate the issue of access entitlements to the corner office. Finally, Forrester predicts that client virtualization will move into the early majority phase as enterprises look to alternative ways to protect their PC data.
