Next Data at Risk: Super Scary Facts-2 Next

Seventy-five percent of today's workforce is now mobile, and they take data everywhere. According to Cisco IBSG Horizons, the average employee has more than three connected devices at any time, and 70 percent of them access corporate data on personal devices.

Organizations put a lot of effort into keeping data within their networks safe, using any of a number of endpoint protection systems and monitoring tools. Unfortunately, once outside the safety of the corporate firewall, corporate data is exposed to threats both seen and unseen. Today's workforce is on the move, working from remote locations almost as much as from a stationary office. To accommodate this fluidity of workplace, mobile devices are now carrying more sensitive corporate data than ever before, making them a prime access point for potential data breaches.

The facts highlighted in this slideshow, provided by Druva, aren't for the faint of heart, so leave a light on while you learn about the dangers faced by data in the wild.
