State of the DataSecOps survey was conducted by the Data Science Connect, a community of over 20,000 data and analytics professionals across North America.

State of the DataSecOps survey focused on the following aspects

  1. Understand the type and the extent of sensitive customer data contained in the data infrastructure and current processes and tools to find and classify the data 
  2. Identify the ownership of securing access to sensitive data and what processes and tools are used for implementing security measures
  3. Benchmark the effort required in meeting data security, governance and compliance requirements and areas of improvement for processes and tools

Survey audience: 

Data engineers, architects and scientists, as well as security, privacy and compliance professionals from over 100 hyper-growth startups, mid-size and Fortune 500 companies participated in the study.

Key insights from the survey include: 

  • 85% of the respondents named breach or exposure of customer’s sensitive data as #1 concern for data security
  • 61% of the respondents had manual processes and tools for requesting access to data making it inefficient and error-prone
  • 62% of the respondents shared that meeting security and compliance requirements slow down their data projects
