Data Protection Research


To explore the topical area of data breach. Specifically, this will include:
  • The operational cost of protecting data, such as cyber protection tools, handling alerts, procedures, among others, relative to the data type and size. Typically, the answers will be in the combined terms of the following:
    • Organizations that have the following data structure: (i) having X millions of DB records; and (ii) having X millions of files.
    • The cost aspect includes: (i) the percentage of those paying on tools that protect the data; and (ii) the percentage of the human hour spent/used to monitor the system and handle alerts.
  • If there's any relation between the data diversity and its scale to the complexity and cost of protecting it.
