Security and privacy converging, studies show

Security and privacy risks are blending for organizations, research unveiled by Microsoft executives Ben Fathi (Corporate Vice President of Development for the Windows Core Operating System Division) and Scott Charney (Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s Trustworthy Computing Group) shows.


Research from the latest Security Intelligence Report and research conducted by The Ponemon Institute also suggests how organizations must change to address this trend.


For example, the Ponemon research showed that organizations with poor collaboration between their security and privacy segments were at least two times more likely than organizations with good collaboration to have suffered a data breach in the prior two years.  For more information and statistics like this:
