Chicago — While all data managers strive for complete security, most would acknowledge that it doesn’t exist. Application Security Inc., a provider of database security, risk and compliance (SRC) solutions for the enterprise, recently announced the findings of its "Database Security Controls" survey, done in conjunction with analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). The survey is based on 179 in-person and phone surveys with global IT decision-makers—including members of the insurance industry—located in North America.

While 58% of respondents reveal that the largest percentage of confidential data is located in their database, 54% note that a lack of internal processes and controls hinder the effectiveness of their database security efforts. The finding that more than half of the respondents suffered a confidential data breach within the past 12 months exposes a key indicator that enterprise organizations experience major gaps in protecting sensitive data.
