As APPI deadlines approach, 66% also prioritizing compliance – a huge rise from last year
SAN JOSE, CA – Apr. 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ – Thales, a leader in critical information systems, cybersecurity and data security, announces the results of its 2017 Thales Data Threat Report, Japan Edition, issued in conjunction with analyst firm 451 Research. This year’s report, which details the 2017 data threat landscape based on the responses from IT security professionals in Japan, finds 66% of Japanese enterprises are making compliance a top IT security spending priority in 2017 (up from 30% last year). Over half (54%) are increasing overall IT security spending, a 23% increase from last year.

Focused on compliance, but still skeptical
Despite this year’s numbers, only 44% of respondents believe that compliance is ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ effective at preventing data breaches. This number is particularly interesting when compared to other regions such as Germany (58%); the U.S. (64%); Australia and Mexico (68%); and Brazil (71%).
Advanced technologies, budget misallocation complicating matters
Also concerning is the mismatch between ratings for effective security controls and spending patterns. Even though data-at-rest security controls are rated the most effective at protecting data by 63% of respondents, it’s at the bottom of the list for IT security spending increases. In fact, only 27% of respondents plan to increase data-at-rest spending. Meanwhile, spending on network security – despite not being listed as the most effective control – will increase for 42% of respondents. When taking pulse of these numbers, its clear organizations keep spending on the solutions that worked for them in the past but may not prevent modern breaches.
Garrett Bekker, principal analyst for Information Security at 451 Research says:
The good news: less vulnerability and an understanding of encryption
Japan respondents also have a strong understanding of encryption benefits. Forty-nine percent of respondents list encryption as the top choice for addressing data privacy and sovereignty requirements. The same number of respondents also say they would increase cloud deployments if offered data encryption in the cloud with key control. Similarly, 39% of respondents would increase IoT deployments and 45% would increase container deployments if they had access to encryption technologies.
Peter Galvin, VP of strategy, Thales e-Security says:
Japanese organizations interested in protecting existing legacy data sources while also taking advantage of advanced technologies should strongly consider:
