Next Data at Risk: Super Scary Facts-8 Next

Governing data is a trick in our mobile world. First, you have to know how much regulated data is even on your endpoint devices. Unfortunately, 81 percent are not aware of how much regulated data they have on mobile devices. Even fewer (16 percent) are aware of how much regulated data resides in cloud-based file-sharing apps.

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.  

While organizations have been grappling with the complexities of BYOD, there's definitely plenty of room for improvement. 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. And turning a blind eye won't make them go away.
