Re: Pardon me but ......
A very fair point. That said, the fundamental problem I see is that there is no holistic data-protection design going into this. "Locked down" should not be the way to think about this issue because in this context (the way I see it) we're not talking about locking data down so much as regulating its flow.

To be certain, cybersecurity, data privacy, and compliance all do fall within the grander bucket of "data stewardship," but they also need to be thought of separately. Trying to achieve compliance and privacy goals while wearing a security hat is inevitably going to lead to failure.

"limited"
Perhaps I need to more carefully review the study itself in context, but it seems that "limited" is the key word here. It's entirely possible that it's not as easy or readily accessible for employees to access these data -- but that they can still do it. So, to be fair, every little bit helps, I would tend to think.

Pardon me but ......
Companies have not even locked down servers and networks.  How can they be so naive as to think that these devices are somehow SECURE???
