Known Data Breaches Go Unaddressed at May Companies – BusinessWire reports, in a recent study performed by ServiceNow of 300 Chief Information Security Officers, more than 80 percent report that detected data breaches are going unaddressed and 70 percent say that it is difficult to prioritize these threats based on business criticality. The study found that automating the security response could increase the effectiveness of their security programs.
