Data loss prevention (DLP) is to be the top security initiative by UK firms in 2016, according to the latest annual TechTarget/Computer Weekly IT Spending Priorities survey.
This shows a shift away from identity and access management (IAM), which was the top area of investment for firms in the UK and Europe in 2015, to focus more directly on data protection.
