Gartner: By 2019, 90% of organizations will have personal data on IT systems they don’t own or control

13th June 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, June 13, 2013: Organizations should create a privacy program that keeps personal data at arm’s length, but under control, according to Gartner, Inc. Gartner predicts that by 2019, 90 percent of organizations will have personal data on IT systems that they don’t own or control.

Enterprises have traditionally been the target of security threats, and until recently, those hackers focused on attacking vulnerable IT infrastructure. As protection for such infrastructure improves, the attackers’ attention shifts to softer targets, such as employees, contract workers, customers, citizens and patients.

Carsten Casper, research vice president at Gartner, said, ”As the amount of personal information increases multifold, individuals and their personal data will increasingly become a security target. And, yet in most scenarios the organization is still ultimately accountable for the personal data on its IT systems. The time has come to create an exit strategy for the management of personal data. Strategic planning leaders will want to move away from storing and processing personal data in the next five years.”

“The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requires the implementation of stringent controls of those who collect and store credit card data. In response, many companies have decided to eliminate credit card data from their own systems and completely entrust it to an external service provider. The same could happen with personal data. If control requirements are too strong and implementation is too costly, it would make sense to hand over personal data to a specialized ‘personal-data processor’”, added Casper.
