Denial, complacency, bargaining, depression and acceptance. If you've ever felt the pain of lost data, then you are keenly aware of these stages. Corporate data loss and leakage are top concerns for C-level executives everywhere. A 2012 Ponemon Institute study found that 90 percent of organizations experienced the leakage or loss of sensitive or confidential documents over the past 12-month period.
A large amount of mission-critical data exists exclusively on laptops and desktops—i.e. "endpoints"—making them them a primary source of unnecessary (and often unrecognized) data loss risk for today's organizations. Through helping thousands of top brands around the world properly manage and protect the critical corporate data on their endpoints, Code42 identified the five common stages of "enterprise endpoint backup grief."
