    Visual Privacy

    The protection of sensitive information as it is displayed on screen is an emerging issue in information security and an under-addressed area of risk in corporate security policies. Given the rapid digitization of sensitive information and the growing mobility of workers, the need to protect displayed information has grown substantially.

    The Visual Data Breach Risk Assessment Study, authored by Dr. Hugh Thompson, Chief Security Strategist of People Security, and commissioned by 3M, the makers of computer privacy filters and mobile privacy screen protectors, found a significant risk of data exposure while information is displayed on laptop screens in public environments with correspondingly little security controls in the way of technology and policy to address this risk.

    There is a basic expectation, and in some cases a mandated requirement, that companies keep sensitive information secure at all times – while it is stored, transmitted and viewed. However, the study revealed that two-thirds (67%) of employees expose sensitive data outside the workplace – some even exposing highly regulated and confidential information like customer credit card and social security numbers. With few companies having concrete policies in place to control the type of data employees access outside of the office, there is a significant corporate risk of a visual data breach.
