As a group, business stakeholders are finally starting to take cybersecurity seriously. But how many truly understand the ramifications outside their organization if their data was breached?
Today, there is an ever growing number of government agencies that might want to know if copies of your data are no longer under your control. From personal information to technical designs and research, the potential for fines and even jail time looms over businesses and executives in virtually every industry. Healthcare has HIPAA, federal contracting has ITAR, NIST, and FISMA, Education has FERPA, public companies have SOX, Financial Services has SSAE16, 35+ states have their own legislation, and now the world is subject to the EU’s GDPR (to name just a few).
Are you at risk? When have you taken “reasonable” steps to secure your data? What is considered negligence? Who is bound to report data breaches? Find out at our next SIM session when Mark Whitson, of Whitson Law, PA, separates fact from fiction in the risks and ramifications of data breaches.
