Recent high-profile data breaches experienced by several national retailers have heightened concerns already pres¬ent among board members, CEOs, CFOs and CIOs that their companies’ confidential data and/or customers’ personally identifiable information (PII) may be exposed.
These concerns are, without question, well-founded. The cost to an organization that experiences exposure of private customer or consumer information can be in the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.
What boards and executives need more than anything today is a high level of confidence that their company won’t make the next big data breach headline and suffer the financial and reputational consequences, along with the impact to operations. But how can board members and executives gain this confidence and ensure their data is safe? Simply being in compliance with applicable laws and regulations does not translate into being secure. You need an in-depth, multilayered approach that goes beyond “checking the box” to ensure the strength and security of your network.
