Data privacy regulations and risk of exposure are driving companies to protect sensitive information across the enterprise. Most companies have taken measures to secure sensitive data in the Production environment, but what about data that is copied from Production to test? Once this occurs, there is wider exposure of the data by developers, QA testers, and consultantsóboth internal and external. Direct access to the raw data in the test environment increases the likelihood of information misuse resulting in exposure, fines and penalties. Gartner research found that 70% of security incidents incurring actual loss are inside jobs. A study conducted by the Ponemon Institute estimates an average cost of $14m per security breach incident, with costs ranging as high as $50m. Donít let this happen to you. Compuware will review the case studies of 3 Fortune 500 companies that have implemented a data privacy solution for their test environment.
