Privacy, Data Protection and Security

By: Arthur M. Freyre

The breach of security and privacy systems in organizations and companies in the last several years, has created a heightened awareness of how important it is for companies and other organizations to protect client and customer data as well as personal information. 

While there is no one size-fits-all approach, a suitable approach to deal with this issue includes frequent data security audits by knowledgeable data security professionals who approach this matter in an inter-disciplinary manner. Failing to protect customer data or a data breach can result in not only damage to your business reputation, but also legal liability, regulatory sanctions, customer distrust, and reduced revenue.

With increased media and government scrutiny of data privacy matters, customers are demanding more from businesses and the government. Customers expect the information they give you is safe from unauthorized use by your employees or outsiders. Indeed, government regulators around the world are also starting to encourage, and in some cases require, companies to protect their citizens’ privacy. Market forces and government regulations are forcing many corporations how to apply protection standards. For many companies and organizations – small and large – the question is how?
