Data, Data Everywhere and Not a Place to Hide

Written By

2017 was full of emerging technology and data breaches. There is reason to believe that 2018 will be more of the same.

Here are some observations on trends for 2018. 

The bottom line is to pay attention to what data is collected, where it is stored, who has access and how long it is kept. Don’t collect data that is not needed or useful. Train employees. Be sure agreements with vendors that have access or store data include protections. Get rid of data that is no longer useful. Have a plan in place in the event of a breach, update it regularly and implement it if a breach occurs.
