Trailrunner7 writes “Enterprises are spending huge amounts of money on compliance programs related to PCI-DSS, HIPAA and other regulations, but those funds may be misdirected in light of the priorities of most information security programs, a new study has found. A paper by Forrester Research, commissioned by Microsoft and RSA, the security division of EMC, found that even though corporate intellectual property comprises 62 percent of a given company’s data assets, most of the focus of their security programs is on compliance with various regulations. The study found that enterprise security managers know what their companies’ true data assets are, but find that their security programs are driven mainly by compliance, rather than protection (PDF).”
