Data Governance Trends: Predictions, pitfalls and technologies for the future of digital work

The 2021 Egnyte Data Governance Trends Report is based on survey data from 400 C-level IT leaders, highlighting the latest challenges in securing and governing the single largest source of enterprise data risk: content.

In 2020, IT leaders reported that the shift to remote work had accelerated content sprawl and created new levels of data risk. In 2021, IT leaders report that hybrid work will continue for the foreseeable future, worsening content sprawl and raising new concerns about the security of sensitive data inside files.

Key findings show ransomware surfacing as the top data security concern for large companies, and differing opinions on how AI can be used to solve the most pressing challenges for security and compliance.
