Compliance teams unaware of threats

Compliance teams within corporations are unaware of threats to confidential information because IT departments hold back information, according to research from the Ponemon Institute.

Compliance teams within corporations are unaware of threats to confidential information because IT departments hold back information, according to research from the Ponemon Institute.

The survey, carried out by privacy and data protection think tank Ponemon Institute on behalf of Oracle, highlighted a major difference in the perception of risks between the IT and compliance organisations of corporations.

According to the findings, 45% of IT practitioners believe they would be able to notify users and customers impacted by a data breach compared to about 25% of compliance workers

Amit Jasuja, vice president product management for ID management at Oracle, said that certain individuals have a “rosier perception” because they are not given all the information.

“The compliance people do not know everything that is going on because it is the IT team that is a lot closer, and they do not always inform people about breaches because it is a black mark against their name,” said Jasuja.
