New Survey Reveals Organizations’ Conflicted Between Data Privacy and Data Science as They Embrace Multiple Cloud Providers
- 70 Percent of Fortune 500 Companies Find It Difficult to Ensure Privacy and Security of Sensitive Data
A new survey commissioned by Privacera, the cloud data governance and security leader founded by the creators of Apache Ranger and conducted by Lead to Market, reveals that digital transformation is driving multi-cloud migrations, as nearly all organizations (85 percent) use at least two cloud providers for data storage and analytics, while 40 percent use five or more. GDPR, CCPA, and other privacy regulations are making cloud migration and analytics difficult, as 7 out of 10 said the effort has become more complex. Comprised of 100 executives from Fortune 500 companies, the survey found businesses are experiencing a conflict between a data scientist’s need for quick data access and IT’s need to ensure data security and privacy, as 58 percent felt that access restrictions were impacting the productivity of their analytic teams.

Managing data security and privacy has become a corporate imperative, as organizations look to avoid data breaches and the misuse of personally identifiable information (PII) that can cost millions of dollars in fines and irreparable damage to brand. Worldwide privacy regulations are creating the need for businesses to not only manage data, but to make it pseudonymized, easy for end-users to erase, and auditable both in terms of location and usage. However, securing sensitive data across cloud-based repositories is difficult, as 70 percent said managing access in compliance with external or internal governance policies was hard — even after it was identified and classified. Worse, 4 out of 5 (81 percent) were not confident that a request from a past customer to delete all information could be executed when stored in multiple cloud services.
The rise in digital transformation and the trend to migrate and manage data across multiple cloud providers is forcing organizations to think about how they are controlling access to sensitive information. Data access control is a common choice for managing data governance and compliance, but what’s in place today may not be the ideal solution tomorrow. In fact, 70 percent said they would require automated solutions for data governance and access control in the next 1-3 years.
