In a world in which information is perhaps the most valued commodity of all, honoring consumers’ choices about how data is used and securing that data is of paramount importance. As a result, privacy and security issues often represent two sides of the same coin: complying with appropriate collection, access and use requirements while safeguarding sensitive information from identification theft and inadvertent disclosure can clearly only be accomplished by a robust security strategy. While certain industries, such as healthcare, financial services and communications, have very specific and unique privacy and security concerns, these issues affect virtually every business organization in the world today—whether in the context of internal employee information, the consumer-facing requirements associated with marketing and payments, protecting your company from cyber-attacks, cross-border commerce, or managing third-party access.
