Their conclusions are based, IMO, on a flawed methodology.

With some conservative assumptions, the paper indicates that companies
actually spend 50% of their budget protecting secrets versus 20% on
complying with external regulations.

I wrote up a more thorough response which I'll post in a few days when
I've proof-read it some more.

The paper concludes that companies are underinvesting in--or improperly
prioritizing--the protection of their secrets. Nowhere does it state that
the money spent on compliance is money wasted.

I find the findings completely flawed.  Am I missing something?
